The Lady Washington Brig
Original pastel painting of the square-rigged sailing vessel, the Lady Washington, seen at anchor in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. My thanks to Michael Ryan for permission to use his wonderful reference photograph. Image size 13.5" x 19.5" (35cm x 50cm), Panpastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmat board (unframed). The first Lady Washington was a 90-ton brig named after Martha Washington. She was the first American-flagged vessel to round Cape Horn, making landfall in Oregon in 1788. She took part in the fur trade and carried tea and porcelain across the Pacific from China. She was the first US ship to reach Japan, but was lost off the Philippines in 1797. The present Lady Washington is a full scale replica, launched in 1989 and sails up and down the coast of California, Oregon and Washington, offering educational programs.

Harrier Over Derwentwater
Original unframed pencil drawing of a Harrier "Jump Jet" flying a low-level training sortie over Derwentwater in Cumbria. As any aircraft enthusiast knows, a beautiful piece of scenery like this can only be enhanced by the sight of a low-flying aircraft! My thanks to Ian Murdoch for the aircraft reference photograph. The background is from my own reference, inspired by watching military jets practising low flying exercises through the beautiful valleys of the Lake District. Image size 15" x 12" (380mm x 300mm) The Harrier first flew in the UK during the late 1960s and was the first V/STOL (vertical/short take off and landing) aircraft, designed to make use of small, concealed or improvised bases, such as forest clearings, without the need for long runways. The Hawker Siddeley Harrier was used by various air forces, including the RAF and USMC, while the Sea Harrier was flown from aircraft carriers while in service with the Royal Navy and the Indian Navy. A later generation was developed in the 1980s as the AV-8B in the United States and in Britain as the British Aerospace Harrier II. However, the Harrier has now been withdrawn from service with most users, to be replaced by the F-35B Lightning II. The last operational Harrier flight in the UK took place in 2010.

Back in childhood I
This painting is created as one of the works in the series about toy train. These works were inspired by my son. Games with my son led me into thinking about my childhood, and my toys. Some of which have not changed over time. And this could be considered a monument to my father because there is no longer Him to ask about His childhood.
