#1031 Pillow

Being a sickly man, I have a cold, I have spent most of today asleep on my pillow, so that's what I've painted. I am SO glad we didn't have patterned pillowcases on at the minute!

#1030 Window and view

I have spent the weekend slowly getting more and more full of cold, so have been gazing out of the window a lot. This is the window seal and a tree in the background. Now, an afternoon sleep.

#1024 Painty Desk

I thoroughly enjoyed painting this little section of my desktop, it isn't a slavish copy, more of a suggestion, you can see some desk top around outside of the painting. I know it's hard to tell the difference!

#1022 Hip Flask

This was a gift from my friends, I think for my 18th birthday, i remember getting it full of whiskey (from Andrew's Dads drinks cabinet!) these days I keep brandy in it, if anything. It's good for outdoor painting days! As long as Im not driving!

#1021 Shaving brush


This is a 'still life' object only I use a contemporary style wet razor for my shaving activities. But I love the idea of the old fashioned brush and soap kjust like my Dad when I was very small and I would brush the soap on my facewhen I had a bath, top fun.

I saw this slightly horrified looking coconut in the supermarket and had two overwhelming desires, to eat it and paint it. Phycoanalysts, form an orderly queue over there please.
