King Butterly Acrylic on canvas 20cmx20cm A tremendous privilege to have this painting going to a young collector to be included in her private gallery. Fabulous Border Collie, calf screaming, walk up the hills of Eastford Estates. The Nature Reserve recovering after being ravaged in the fires. Amongst the pioneer plants, the foundations of homes raised to the ground, a sobering reminder of the trauma. Ticks,

Painting of Central Park received a ‘Special Recognition Award’ for Outstanding Art at the 11th Annual International Open Exhibition. Selected from 879 entries. Managed to bruise my bum falling over my feet. Seriously painful. Made for an interesting right-side, left-side dilemma between COVID jab tenderness, bum and my still unhappy shoulder. Terry did a delicious Dog Mom’s, post Covid isolation lunch. Starter: chèvre wrapped

While we adjust to the increased Lockdown, the sea thunders with the onset of the latest storms. Grateful for our fire! And that extra glass of red wine. Stretching canvas, not my best. However, with a bit of effort, I have a new canvas waiting. During my time in New York City, I admired the artists painting various aspects of Central Park, without the confidence

ArcherOil on canvas 20cmx30cmCommissioned work, alongside the ‘Fly Fisherman’. Fragmented strokes to create a sense of volume, while minimizing detail and focusing on the poise and strength of the archer. Core muscles pounded to mush on the Buffs trail ride. While not technical, still demanding through soft sand and the ride along the railway line section. Spectacular it is, Early sunshine on the breaking

Rillettes de Canard. Delicious. Served with Steenberg MCC, and Pinot Noir. Perfect. Rillettes (Ree-Etts) in which seasoned cooked meat, or fish, is shredded and combined with fat into a soft pate. Served at room temperature, spread

‘Archer’, a companion painting to ‘Fly Fisherman’. I used the same Naples Yellow underpainting and the grey mixture of Cobalt Blue and Burnt Sienna. However, the painting approach and feel for the painting is very different. Beach walk on a stunning, sun-filled day. J9 for Coreta’s Marsala braaied chops, served with a touch of boerie, curried cauliflower, creamed spinach and oodles of green salad. After

Kite Runner Oil on canvas 60cmx50cm From my Afghanistan Series Pallet knife scraping away the mush of paint, as I wrestle with the portrait on the easel. Slowly evolving out of my incompetence. Shaking hands adding their own complexity to the painting.Kind of heading to the geriatric FKT’s on our usual running and cycling routes. Relieved that limb, or mechanical breakdown, are balanced by the joy
