‘White-on-White’ Acrylic and recycled plastic water bottle butterflies on canvas received a Special Merit Award for ‘Art of Outstanding Quality’ at the 12th Annual International Abstracts Exhibition, chosen from 1,206 entries from 34 different countries. Underpainting for the ‘Lotus’ art piece using a light gray mixture of Cobalt Blue and Burnt Sienna. The 2mx1,5m canvas fun to work with. Thunder driving Prince demented. The Commissioned work

‘Horsing Around’, one of my paintings from Nieu Bethesda Sold and heading to its new home at the Bangladesh Ambassador. Gorgeous summer day, with a touch of rain before the sun turned the estuary into hues of brilliant colour. Fabulous display of summer flowers on the walk around Leisure Island. Heat, the arch enemy of chocolate and keeping the studio cool the new challenge heading

Oil on Canvas 90cmx60cm The beach paintings of Joaquin Sorolla are full of movement and life, capturing the innocent pleasure of children in particular. This, my inspiration for the painting of the Boy and his dog. Bold strokes, on an underpainting of Naples Yellow that pushed into the abstract expressionism boundaries for the painting. For the shadows in the painting, I used Purple Madder (Van Dyk
