Prints and cards

I now have some original work, Giclee prints and cards available on my Fine Arts America site. I'm hoping to add some more work when I get the chance. Starting the next classic car commission is now on hold for a few days as I'm waiting for paper.

Hope everyone is working hard and has a great weekend:-))

Another beautiful day spent in the garden. It's taking a long time to get the garden back into shape. Last year we did nothing with it as Pip was going through the digging and wrecking stage and we were fighting a losing battle. He's now happy to just 'potter' whilst we're working so I feel we're now making headway. I've done sone re potting as some things were getting root bound. Hopefully they'll flourish now. I'm hoping to do some more tomorrow but it has given rain so will have to wait and see.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Stuff and Dangerous Beauties

It's been a beautiful day here so I've flitted between doing some gardening and uploading work to a new website. I've been looking through some work I did a few years ago and found some watercolour paintings I did of some Foxgloves that I had photographed in our garden. They measure 28x39 cm and are for sale for £195 each including UK postage. If anybody is interested or would like to make me a reasonable offer then I can be contacted via my website.

The garden is coming along nicely. It's looked like a bomb site since Pip was a puppy as he loved nothing more than digging holes and digging my plants up. Now he's a bit older and out of the destroying stage we can start to tidy it up without it getting wrecked.

I'm hoping to get some more done over the weekend as the forecast is good.

Next commission is another Classic car which I'm hoping to start next week.

Have a good weekend everybody.

Mini works of art on a card

Thought I'd just add this photo so that you can see what the cards can look like framed.

Hand painted cards

Here's a selection of my hand painted cards that I have added to my shop today.

The triple cat portrait has gone to it's new home today. My clients collected it this afternoon. I'm waiting for photos for my next commission so whilst I've been waiting I've set up a shop to sell my hand painted cards I've not got many on there at the moment but it's quite time consuming uploading everything.

George, Sylvie and Gemma

Here are the next stages and the finished portrait. Gemma, the red and white tabby, was a rescue cat when my clients lived overseas and unfortunately she had a very poorly eye which had to be removed. She manages perfectly well though.

Anyway I've just had an email to say that my clients are thrilled with the finished portrait.

Having just completed a commission of a Maine Coon it's inspired me to do a portrait of one of my boys, Ally. It has been nice to do a portrait of a familiar subject for a change.

Thursday, 1 April 2010


I've finished the Maine Coon portrait and my client is really pleased with it, so am I for that matter. I've really enjoyed this portrait.

Next it's three cats which I'll start next week and I can show progress pics of that portrait.

It's our first Wedding Anniversary on Sunday so hopefully a weekend of celebrations!!

Happy Easter everybody.
