Untitled spontaneous piece…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

30/05/15….Two days after the gallery opening, I was still feeling the effects of a very enjoyable night but unfortunately I was now at the familiar “depression” stage. The large 80x60cm blank canvas I had bought for a nice big portrait was now the focus of capturing my mood so I painted this… By the evening… Read more »

“War’s No Joko!”…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I’m not pro Beatles, I’m not anti Beatles. I was just more of a Stones fan. But if I’m going to paint any Beatles pictures then they have to have meaning and be powerful. This one is right up my street, again featuring a placard that can be tailored towards the individual’s needs!    (26/05/15)… Read more »

Opening this Thursday is a brilliant little new gallery full of character and it will be home to four of my original paintings where they will go on sale (along with prints of each piece also available)…  (Click to enlarge) To say I’m both flattered and excited is an understatement! What a week it’s been… Read more »

Also going to start “Nice and Cool” soon too…

I said I’d do this back in January 2014 in honour of “Trigger” actor Roger Lloyd Pack who died that month. I didn’t get round to it because the image in black and white just wouldn’t have done the scene justice, and I was only brave enough to paint in black and white back then…. Read more »

“Brown Man’s Fear”…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Following on from the last painting, I thought I’d continue with the music video theme. The orchestral intro to this Ian Brown song, coupled with the clever song lyrics, make “Fear” a great song and combined with the video it’s a true work of art. I watched the video on YouTube and took a screen… Read more »

BIG project…”Homesick Bob”

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It’s coming up to 2 years since I started painting and, since I walked out of my job on Tuesday, I will have plenty of time to work on my biggest piece yet – on 20″ x 24″ canvas, I am replicating a photo of Bob Dylan on a shoot of his “subterranean homesick blues”… Read more »

“Princess In Chains”…

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I think it was seeing Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) in that golden metal bikini in ‘Star Wars – Return Of The Jedi’ that gave 6 or 7 year old me his first feelings of, ahem, “amoré” shall we say? I chose this piece because I am a little tired of drawing male icons and want… Read more »
