Disappearing Paintings March 2016

I painted these three canvases after Spectrum paints very kindly sent me some new tubes of oil paint. Sadly my ground wasn’t suitable and the linseed leaked into the support discolouring the painting. I painted over. However I am re-painting the main and to my mind most successful image below.

Two canvases – Lady Bay May 2014


newart'Punky' 2014 Acrylic on Canvas 24" x 24" £300

These two canvases were painted in may last year before the Lady Bay ‘Moogee’ show. They were shown but in a hallway but many people may have missed them.

I did not put online at time as they been at my friend Stephe’s from last May until recently. I forgot about them when I submitted to the Open. They may indicate where I headed in the new sequence I will be working on for this year’s Lady Bay show. Again it will be at 117 Holme Road 🙂

Summer 2014: Painting and Drawing – Nottingham Open


These two drawings were accepted and shown in the Nottingham Open 2014. These two pieces  were easily selected for my submission because they along with the large three part canvas below were the ONLY three pieces of work I completed in 2014.


James Elkins: Artists with PhDs illustrations

These are the final dozen illustrations as delivered to James Elkins for his 2nd Edition of Artists with Phds book (Published May 2014). It enabled me to successfully complete my M.A. by registered project for which I received a distinction in January 2014.

My thanks to James Elkins for a ‘revealing’ experience although I maybe now know more than I need to about Fine Art Phds and their academic validity:-)
