Door


Trying some John Lovett inspired doors and windows.   Still in the sketchbook – I feel I need to fill up the pages now.

Both the door and the window are too squat.  It’s a nasty habit I have and it makes things look a little cartoonish.   Reasonably happy wit hthe color variation in the door and window but the bricks could have been a little livelier.

More Pig


The pig painting was very popular so I’m doing some more of them.   They’re quite fun – quick and have enough challenge to be enjoyable.   Here’s the latest – done in my new handmade sketchbook.

Pig on a fence.  He’s pretty small – about 4×3

And some context shots.

Sold!! Four gone at the CCAE Raise The Roof Exhibit

Great excitement at the opening night of the CCAE exhibition!   I had already sold one painting to a friend of ours but when I walked in 2 more had already gone – autumn landscape and the european woodpecker.  Quite emotional – I really wasn’t expecting it.   About an hour later another one had gone – a sketch of 56 Brattle Street where we have our classes.  Quite a triumph – I can’t tell you how pleased with myself I am.

And here I am in front of them all.  Grinning like a loon.
