Balanced Diet

A balanced diet in this case consists of an ice cream in each hand - how else could you balance on a shoelace? Week 49's little painting is on its way to Vita Rossa gallery in Te Horo, Kapiti Coast, NZ, along with a few other works of mine. If you're lucky enough to be in the area during the holidays, be sure to check it out.. thanks for popping in.. e^)

Time Out

Week 48.. Time Out is 255mm x 255mm x 35mm and in oil, roughly the size you see when you click on the image. I used white, raw sienna and burnt umber to try and capture a feeling of space and airiness, although slightly breezy. It is on auction here.. thanks for looking.

Soul Patch II

I'm doing a small number of really tiny oil paintings - miniatures - and sell them on Trade Me
This one is 100mm x 100mm x 10mm, stretched canvas, sides painted and spells out the New Zealand I know and see, especially over Christmas when the Pohutukawa's are in full, red bloom. It works like music to the soul.. thanks for the visit, this is week 47's post.

Comfortable Groove

It's not so bad being in a rut, see? Little painting nr 46 of the 52 for this year. Measurements are 305mm x 305mm x 35mm and I used oil again. My camera records the red as an orange, so get your pink glasses on for this one... thanks for the visit!

In A Rut

Just finished a new one for week 45 - oil on stretched canvas, ready to hang and available on Trade Me for this week. I enjoyed painting this! Till next time... ciao.

The Rose

Week 44 came and went and I didn't even notice - was I even here? So here is a plate I painted in china painting class - loved it. It was a gift for my dear MIL who has it on her wall in the lounge. Will be back soon with another post...
