'Morris Minor' with added cherry blossom…

Thrilled to have delivered my latest bespoke Shelf-Portrait ‘Morris Minor’ to the lovely Mel 🙂
I so enjoyed painting this one – it has some favourites of mine in, including a Duane Michals catalogue from an exhibition in Oxford I saw, a collection of Roger McGough poetry and, of course, the obligatory iconic Observers book.
…and doesn’t her garden look lovely scattered with cherry blossom!

Things Can Only Get Better

I was very busy in the run up to Christmas, completing five new bespoke Shelf-Portrait oil painting commissions.
Mission Accomplished!! So now that they have been delivered and given to their new owners, I can share them with you….
This one is called ‘Things Can Only Get Better’….

I’m greatly looking forward to being a part of the art buzz at the New Artist Fair at the Old Truman Brewery next weekend. Lots of new Shelf-Portrait work coming down to London with me, as well as a good selection of Limited Edition Giclee prints, framed and unframed….
Had a little ‘practice hang’ last week…

A new home in Hebden Bridge for my ‘So Hebden Bridge’ Shelf-Portrait, and a most successful end to my Shelf-Life exhibition at Northlight Art Studios.
Looking forward to taking the remaining new work down to Brick Lane for the New Artist Fair next week…
