Hello. This is my new blog and my plan is to add paintings each month. I would be really interested to know what you think of them. Already a number of people have left really nice comments, which is lovely. Thank you.
At the moment I am working on a series of sea-scapes. The varying colours of the sea fascinate me. So far I have painted nine sea-scapes and I am now working on the tenth. It is much larger than the others and a real challenge. I hope to have an exhibition of these in the autumn in Bristol.
It is hard to choose which paintings to include on my site, because my style has changed and developed over the ten years. I have gained confidence in my work and when I look back at my first paintings they are so different from what I am doing today. Although I don’t think it is good, I am going to include my very first painting, to show just how much my work has changed.
I started painting because my brother suggested it would be an interest for me to follow. I enjoyed art at school, so I thought that I would try. Over the years I have learned more and more, and many people have been interested enough in my work to buy paintings. Altogether I have sold about half the paintings I have made. I like to think that they are enjoyed.
