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.

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.

After doing many drawings of the cyclists and the Yorkshire hills I settled for this village composition. Oil on canvas 41 x 52cm SOLD

This painting was for the Olympic road race that went passed Hampton Court. I saw the riders as not only forming a coloured pattern as they whizzed by but also a group with strong dynamics flowing between them. SOLD

Once around the island

In my painting the swimmers are like porpoises. Smooth, sleek and at one with the water. How I envy people who can swim like this. Oil on canvas  54 x 73cm

Winners and Losers

We all know them. They are there to WIN. Others are there for the fun. This painting is all about the different motivations we have when we do things.
