This is the latest one and it is a work in progress. I started it on 14 September and today I have been blocking in all the colour. It is oil on canvas and is 80 x 60cm. I still have some work to do on it yet.
This is " I am Woman II", oil on canvas and 90 x 70cm. This is one of the first portraits that I have done that I have been quite happy with 'ish.

....and this is a commission that I started today. I have got the tongue slightly too high so I will be moving that down tomorrow. I thought the dog was amazing as it looked like it was laughing all of the time. It is called a Labradoodle.
I am working on all of these paintings at Gallery 150, Regent Court Shopping Centre, Livery Street, Leamington Spa so if you are in the area, do pop in and say hello.
Had to resort to doing another still life too and this one is being worked on at the moment. The blue thing is the start of a label. I was in the supermarket when a saw a woman sticking her nails into the pears to test whether they were ripe (I suppose). At first I was disgusted but then when I looked at the pear I thought I would buy it and use it in a painting. I liked the nail marks and the bruising that she had caused.
This one is still being worked on at the moment. I have added the strip of red down the side to attempt to balance the painting and add some contrast to the black and white.
I really dont know where this one came from, I have some very strange ideas sometimes. Still here he is, it is a Bulldog and he is supposed to be looking through a window on a rainy night. The white bit in the corner is not a flash bouncing off it, it is painted on.
Here is a portrait that I completed during October. It is of a lovely lady that I know. It is oil on canvas and 16"x12" so not huge.
