Eggs for tea
Young lady in a blue dress holding a chicken. The hen has brown feathers tipped with gold, and is looking up at her. What is she thinking? I reckon its "eggs for tea" and hence the title. The background is a simple mixed abstract of colours and the whole has layers of gold highlights in selected parts. This artwork is oil on wood panel and needs framing. Glass will give extra protection against the environment but is not necessary. I can arrange framing for additional cost
My version of Religious Icon work - I'm drawn to these kind of artworks. Madonna is smiling down at the newborn Jesus, a tear of joy just leaving her eye. The baby looks out at the world with an expression that belies his newborn status. Both Mary and Christ have golden Aureoles surrounding their heads. The abstract background of dark blues and swirling colours has tiny touches of gold dust and represents the clear night sky.

Simple oil on paper of a typical winter woodland scene, in soft blues, crimson and yellows and white snow. artwork size is 6 x 4 inches and this work comes complete with cream mount and narrow wood frame, ready to hang.

Its late summer and small creeks run across the marshes, with a shingle barrier holding back the sea. Cows graze steadily to the right of the marshland, and a small yacht sails slowly across the sea. This was painted on location at Cley visitor centre on a beautiful autumn day. I'd put the cows in via artistic licence but a visitor who'd looked at the work as I was painting came back to tell me the cows were just there but out of my line of vision to the left and as we were chatting the yacht sailed into view. life mirroring art perhaps, or just knowledge of the landscape. take your pick..
All is not well in Fairyland 2
No 2 of the series of woodland disasters. "I get her out of the kitchen, and off to the ball. She meets the prince and has a great evening. All Cinderella had to do was be back by midnight, just one little request and can she do it? No, and now I'm in serious trouble with the chief Elf because the mice have run amok,there's bits of pumpkin everywhere and the prince has got the magic glass slipper and won't give it back.. Ungrateful girl."
ll is not well in fairyland 1
Just to prove that even in magical fairyland there are problems. The Woodland Tax bill is in, Mr Elf has been at the Oak Wine, the caterpillars have been at the toadstools, I just want some peace and quite and the damn butterflies won't go away, and to cap it all I've just trodden in fox cr*p. oil on canvas, with sunset glowing softly through a large woodland tree. The fairy is sitting at the base surrounded by toadstools and buitterflies. the tree and the toadstools have a sprinkling of gold dust on adding to the magical scene.
Its the end of a sunny day on the beach and the skies have turned rippling shades of yellows, golds and crimson fading to deep prussian blue. The reflections of the sky on the wet sand as the tide has turned have changed the beach to a crimson wonderland with soft waves rippling over the sands.
