Windmills of my mind
This is a panoramic (length 26.5 x width 9 inches) original impressionist watercolour painting of 5 windmills silhouetted against the sky adjacent to a dutch dyke (a great deal of Holland is below sea level). The scene is painted from a photograph taken at dawn as the sky lights up above the mist rising over the still water in the dyke. This painting will be supplied with a bevelled mount and a glazed black frame.

Still Life Hydrangeas
An oil painting of some beautiful pink hydrangeas that I picked out of my garden. They are sitting on a table in a vase in front of my room window. It is painted on a 20x16 inch canvas and is painted on all sides so can be hung without a frame or you can frame it if you like. The side views have a yellow cast because they were photographed in electric light.
Folkestone Beach Huts
On The Edge: Brown Cow
This sweet brown cow is part of a series of paintings entitled On the Edge. I wanted to explore how much, or how little of the subject you needed to see in order to still recognise it. Perhaps I should push this a little further and call the next series Falling Off the Edge! Of course, with some subjects, on the edge carries the dual meaning of being under threat from ecological or environmental disaster. It, therefore, reminds us to tread lightly on the earth and steward its resources responsibly. Painted in acrylics on a 50x70cm canvas ready to hang. All sides are painted, as per Gallery hanging requirements. The work is signed on the front, and a Certificate of Authenticity is included in the purchase.
