My latest completed painting

Weather hasn't really encouraged me to spend much time in my studio past couple of weeks. Grey, cold and damp weather seems to have robbed me of most of my inspiration. However, I did complete this portrait of Michael, a fellow artist. I'm always meaning to do more portraits of friends of mine.... But never seem to quite manage it! If there's anyone out there who can offer me a few days in the warm sun, please let me know. Can always paint a portrait for you in return for some hospitality?

Portrait of President Barack Obama

After seeing Barack Obama being sworn in as America's next President, I couldn't help but paint his portrait. It's as simple as that. The size is 30x36 inches, oil on canvas, price £460, plus shipping costs. Any collector interested in this portrait, please contact me:

Start of a New Year!

So, the holiday period is behind us and we can all get back to our daily routine! Though I was still busy, not necessarily producing work, but working on the internet, trying to get a stronger presence. This takes loads of time and effort! Went to my studio on 1st January, but it was so cold (given I hadn't been there for over a week and it had become like a fridge) that whilst there I promptly contracted a cold! Came home. Ok, so we are now into the New Year, and my teaching will commence again in a few days. Our life drawing class will start in a few weeks, so am displaying here two photos that I hope will give a flavour as to how the class operates. Wishing all my followers the very best in the New Year, and please keep in touch.
