SOLD From a photo by Terry at Sedgefield AfroQuartez Opera Group at Freshline made for a great evening out. The weaving of traditional language into classic opera, the highlight. Terry took the Ottolenghi cauliflower creation to another level with ‘Piment D’espelette’, a red chilli pepper that hails from the Basque region that is not screaming hot, but packed with flavour. The pepper was first brought to

Butterflies. The last of the recycled plastic water-bottle butterflies painted and ready for the commissioned painting. My shaking hands meant that trying to flip the keto-crepe's resulted in piles of mushed mess. Fortunately there was enough mixture to develop a double handed flip, with the crepe sliding up the back of the pan to have enough space for the lifter to operate. Not pretty,

Edith at the gallery in Zurich with the digital image of my 'Lotus' painting. Incredible.

Acrylic on canvas 20cmx20cm From a Photo by Lorraine. The large canvas for the ‘Lotus’, Recycled Water Bottle Butterflies delivered to the Studio. Immensely grateful that we have suppliers in this part of the world who can make canvases to order. The underpainting, white on white acrylic a matter of feel for the raw canvas. The Silent War.

A disaster. Storms, and falling temperatures, which inspired the Coq au

Oil paint on the plastic water bottle butterflies not a success. The oil paint too heavy for the salt-bush twigs I’m using to create the abstract mark-making. Taking a bunch more care to determine which part of the plastic water bottle I need to move the reflected light around the painting. Christmas eve dinner, on a perfect summer evening. Terry found the Worlds best Christmas crackers from

‘MM’ oil on canvas 50cmx60cm, my study of Manet’s painting ‘Before the mirror’, which he painted in 1846, has been included in the SCAVA “Old Masters” exhibition that will open on the 17th November. Mist hanging low over the mountains made for a pretty, if a tad nervy ride. Zero visibility with my glasses coated in mist. Followed Craig’s bright socks hoping that he

The painting of the Cheetah Cubs at that point, where, that touch of magic. If. I’m brave enough. To let it happen. Disaster avoided, as howling winds tossed the shopping bag, containing eggs, as I tried - unsuccessful - to navigate a walk between storm squalls. Wet. Bedraggled.
