Wet Boots’ 20x20cm

Oil and beeswax on canvas

This painting although previously thought finished, had been sticking out from the rest here in my studio the past few months looking to rework its ending.. So today I gave in.. there is a fear in reworking an old painting but it’s a fear that drives me sometimes also..I hope I made the right decision.. I’ll know in a few months maybe..

‘Wet Boots’ (Reworked) 20x20cm Oil on Canvas



‘Wet Boots’ 20x20cm Oil on Canvas


This is something I am working on at present.. I find it hard to ‘stop painting’’s like my conscience is whispering to stop but I can’t. Physically, I feel compelled to work some of my paintings up and up until they are almost smothered.. that is where I ‘go’ when I surround myself with my subject..

New Painting


Oil, Mixed Media on Canvas, 61cm x 61cm

The light changes so much in the forest as I walk through it almost every day. I feel apart of the surrounding atmosphere and I absorb all of its virtues through all my senses.

The enormity of the trees,

the scent,

the colours,

the light,

the sounds,

the movements.

New paintings, new layers 

A Colourless Look at Colour

I took this on my phone yesterday of a small painting I’m currently  working on. Converted into black and white, shows its texture more and changed its mood somewhat.. The measuring of a narrative stripped of its colour changes slightly to my mind.
