Much as I would like to think I was going to get one up on the airline, the real reason for this title to my latest blog is about dates for the 2019 painting in Italy week. Now that I know the times of the flights direct from Stanstead to Pescara, the best dates for […]
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.
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

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, […]
“Fire Dance” 50 x 50cm. How lovely to have some fun and create a painting that with such joyful freedom. I layered until I felt I must stop. This is a new departure for me to be more abstract but it will certainly not be my last as I enjoyed it so much. The only […]
Acrylic on canvas. 59.5 x 42 cm. The narrative of this painting is the contest between small, happy fish versus strong men and sophisticated equipment.
