Animal Urges


This is a commission painting I recently did for a lovely lady. She has three rescued horses all with heart wrenching stories. The paint in this picture – Arrow – was a brumby who had been found with half a dozen arrows projecting from various parts of his body. 67 more words


This weekend my focus is on painting a commission.  I am concentrating on this whilst dealing with an ear worm, an expression which does make me squirm somewhat.   163 more words

Ibis in Gold

To compliment my recent Elephant in Red and Gold here is the Ibis.

Watch out Mousie for the toaster!  It is nice to see my work hanging in its new home.  This Mousie print has made its way to Cheltenham.
