The moon behind the building that I teach my evening classes in (last one of the term this evening) the band of light is the roof with a light on it.

#005 Crafty Bird

This little birdy beauty adorns the notice board in my office at work and watches me as I work with his beady eye. Made for me by Willem, great artist but not much work available yet to see as he's only 6, this is an early piece circa 2008.

#003 Kitchen Floor

#001 Tube of Paint - Year Four


A new begining then. I am a little amazed that I have just started my fourth year of daily painting. And still havent missed a day (apart from the one day when I forgot to post but I still painted!). I never thought I would keep it going for that long.. And I already have a pretty good idea what I will do next year.......

But back to this year. The theme is a little bit different this time, I am going to be making 366 (2012 is a leap year!) digital ipod/ipad paintings, these will be available as prints so keep an eye out for more info on that once I have done a few of the paintings (or are they drawings?).
I have started the year of digital pictures with this, one of one my favourite tubes of paint; Carmine Lake. I see it as a sort of handover picture, from real to virtual colour. But dont worry I will still be making real paintings...

#1092 (#363) Cold Pack

This painting is a reminder to ice my thumb, unknown injury but it hurts like the devil himself is poking his trident into it (the devil has a trident, right?) when I bend it too far and, worst of all, when I paint! Only two more paintings till the Doctor Who style reincarnation happens.....

#1091 Ball of Wool

#1086 Foam and Cotton

I like the way cotton strands seem to stick to everything this is a piece of that blue foam stuff with two such errant strands of thread running across it.

#1084 Wallpaper

This is the wallpaper in my studio, it is a three dimensional bubble pattern. So far I haven't been tempted to pop any of the bubbles, like you do on bubble wrap!

This is one of my favourite Albums can you guess what it is... I reckon some of you will have a better idea than others!

You can't quite see the zip on my top here, you also can't tell that I have painted it upside down due to painting it while wearing it!

#1079 Egg and Lime

If you want to know why I've painted an egg and a lime, you'll have to ask my evening class or enroll on next years 'introduction to painting' course at the University of Gloucestershire!

#1071 An Unnaturally Square Piece of Rock

I think this came from Sand Bay we collected it due to its amazing straight fault lines almost as if it was man made.
