portraits and landscapes in oils

 

STOP PRESS!

 

 

Two of my recent paintings have been selected for the

Oxford Art Society Open Exhibition 2018.

"The Yellow Tree" is an Autumn landscape featuring that wonderful moment

when most of the leaf colours are at their height but there has been a period of

still, dry weather so the trees still have practically all their leaves.

It's as if they have kept their summer shape and they're holding their breath:

holding on before a storm wind comes to force the fall.

If you look beyond the fringe of trees on the horizon, the sky is dark and foreboding.

The yellow tree and all its neighbours will be a different shape very soon.

 

The other selected painting is a new portrait of my old dog "Gem", who died

two years ago and I still miss her very much.
