Still here....and trying to keep up

Hi all, I know I have said it before but this year seems to be going past me at breakneck speed....so much to do , so little time so my apologies for my neglected blog.




The Big Easter Art Exhibition was a great success raising over £7,000 for our local (St Michaels) Hospice, I personally sold four paintings so it was a good weekend for me!


Just to prove that I've not been idle here are a selection of commissioned paintings that have been keeping me busy in recent weeks..Below are some images of the product of my labours, first is an A3 watercolour painting of "Themba" a beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback, then a graphite commission in memory of "Harry" a playful Jack Russell Terrier, the drawing is A3 size and I really enjoyed working on it....even those grasses!




Next up is "Annie" another Jack Russell Terrier this one is an acrylic portrait on a 30x 30 square canvas




Then come Taitti the GSD x Dachshund and Zippy the JRT, both painted in pastels just slightly bigger than A4







































I guess I just need an oil painting now to complete the set!
