My fourth zodiac sign is Capricorn

I read that 53k people in the UK keep a goat as a household pet. Astonishing, but a lovely image for my Capricorn painting. Apparently Capricorn people are nostalgic, ambitious and goal oriented, wanting to reach the top. I think my goat has achieved considerable status in this household.

Amorous Aries

The third in my Zodiac series. Aries are independent leaders and shamelessly flirty. …….I think I know one or two of those. Acrylic on wood 30 x 30cm. On 20th & 21st October I will be on stand 61 at the Landmark Centre in Teddington for their Autumn Art Fair. My three new Zodiac paintings […]

2nd painting in the Zodiac Series

My second painting in this series is called “Loving the company of Leo”. Leo people are warm and affectionate and can be counted on to bring sunshine into other people’s lives. They are, however, used to being the king of the jungle so to be the companion of a Leo you need to know your […]

New Zodiac series

I’ve commenced my new Zodiac Series of paintings with Taurus. This painting called “Taurus tamed” was inspired by the characteristics of this star sign ( reliable, practical, ambitious and sensual with an eye for beauty) and something I read that for a bull-ride to count, the rider has to stay on it’s back for 8 […]

These “Early Birds” are enjoying the sunrise

Lovely as this heatwave is, running has to be done early and these girls are out at sunrise. A new semi abstract painting that I’m now in the process of framing, ready for exhibiting in London. Painted in acrylics on canvas, 63 x 63 cm

On the theme of Mind and Body

Having done yoga for years, I thought my next painting should be about the little understood effect our minds have on our bodies. Trusting someone to do a partnering pose can be quite challenging and usually ends up in a heap and lots of laughter. The two ladies in my painting are concentrating hard and […]

Another painting on the theme of reflections

This new painting “Reflections at the Bar” is another semi-abstract acrylic on canvas 61 x 45 cm. It is on the theme of what happens to all the images that a mirror sees during the course of a ballet practise, like “Warming up”, It is in a more abstract style than some of my other […]

Warming up

50 x 50cm. Acrylic on canvas. This new semi-abstract painting is a composition in many layers, loosely depicting warming up in a gym with the mirrors seeing many images throughout a period a time.

On the edge of greatness

59 x 84 cm. Acrylic on canvas. Following on from my semi-abstract painting called ‘Fire dance”, this painting is about the leap of faith we have to make in order to move out of our comfort zone and try something new. Whether that move is a change for the better or just a temporary departure, […]
