“Love and Tate”…

Miesha photo

After such a great response to my Conor Mcgregor painting, I think it’s only right to paint a female UFC icon and my first thought was Meisha Tate – not just because she beat Holly Holm on that same night Conor lost (I deffo jinxed him!) but because she is one darlin’ too! And luckily… Read more »

“Paco and Olivia”…

Posted by & filed under Blog.

November 17, 2012: Olivia Wilde walks her dog Paco, in New York City.  While out Wilde stopped to get herself a cup of coffee at the Blue Bottle Coffee Co.  Before going in, Wilde made sure Paco wouldn't run off by securing his leash to the company's sidewalk sign.

Being a Twitter follower of Olivia Wilde’s, I see her posting regularly about animal rights (a subject I am a keen supporter of) so she has long been a person I’ve wished to paint. I love to paint gorgeous women who have class and integrity, and when I found this picture (7am today on a… Read more »

With the death of legend David Bowie in January, I still feel it’s too early to be jumping on the bandwagon so I’ve decided to paint him in this photo on the set of Ricky Gervais’ “Extras”. Brilliant scene … 12/03/16…painting over the “Neds” ending I started the other day. Just wasn’t feeling that piece…… Read more »

“Lions Den”

Posted by & filed under Blog.

Started this one last night on a 12×9″ canvas, which I’ll keep quiet as I may use it as a Facebook competition question again. 07/03/16…45mins… 12/03/16… Decided not to carry on with this piece from “Neds”, as I just wasn’t feeling it. I’ve now begun to paint over it with a David Bowie scene from… Read more »

After watching THEE WORST film of the “Terminator” franchise so far (“Terminator Genisys” -AWFUL. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!), I’ve decided to paint Arnie as the T-800 in “Terminator 2”, the BEST film of the franchise. This will hopefully redeem things and make me feel less unclean and used after watching that entire pile of… Read more »

The man of the moment, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, is my next subject (keeping with the idea of always working on three paintings at any one time). I’d be lying if I said there was any sentimental meaning to this piece, although of all the UFC fighters, Conor is my favourite. He has the most… Read more »

This piece was started as part of the “Spring 2016 competition giveaway” at the end of February (which was won after the first picture clue was uploaded!) The title I’ve given it refers to the obvious passion between the title character “Donnie Darko” and Gretchen, but also the fact that (SPOILER ALERT!) the climax of… Read more »

My next painting is going to be the basis for a giveaway of 5 collectable fridge magnets. The winner just has to identify the title of the film that this scene I am painting is from.
