Botallack Mines, Cornwall
The Engine Houses at Crown Mine, part of the Botallack Mine site on the west coast of Cornwall and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Botallack mines are known as submarine mines because they travel half a mine out to sea, beneath the sea bed. It would have been a noisy and dangerous place to be, at it's peak of production of copper and arsenic, but since 1880s it has been silent. Perched on the edge of the cliff it is now a place of quiet reflection.

Woodpecker Romance is a tall painting on canvas (40x16x1.5 inches with wide edges) of two woodpeckers flirting with each other on two trees. The style is art nouveau and contemporary. The two trees rise up in a winnowy elegant motion and the branches curl around each other making sinuous patterns against the gold tinted sunset sky. The paint is thick and textured and the patterns continue around the edge of the canvas on all sides. This painting is not a typical one for me as there was no real inspiration for it apart of just liking art nouveau and woodpeckers and getting a concept in my mind that it would look good. I like the simplicity of it and the playfulness of the birds. It is ready to hang and does not a frame.

Irish Red Fox
This painting was produced in my tiny ground floor flat, I made up every excuse possible not to paint here, Too small not enough room, not enough light, ran out of paints, the list goes on! I had my close friends that gave me the encouragement and determination to paint against the odds, and have fun on the way. This was a joy to do, love the detail, the slyness and shyness of this clever cunning fox. Painted with oils on boxed canvas, no need to frame.
