Small 16" x 12" acrylic painting in free style.  I did this one in about 2 hours this morning, it's small but I had great runny acrylic fun with it.  It's cold here at the moment so the paints take a while to dry.. which suits me as I can then blend to my heart's content before the paint goes tacky.  Thanks for looking, this is on Trade Me  ..e^)

abstract - beach walk

Time to do something different for a change.  I felt like playing with acrylic paint and a large painting knife.  The result reminds me of my favourite local beach, Long Bay.  It's a 1km long sandy beach gently sloping towards the water.  It is also protected area and great for an early morning walk.

Oil on stretched canvas, sides painted, ready to hang 16" x 12" or 410mm x 310mm.  Sometimes rain is such a blessing, especially when it's not really cold or windy.  This little painting is available on Trade Me or on Redbubble as a print - or even a card.  Thanks for looking - will be back next week with another piece, not sure what it'll be yet ...e^)

Bandana Crowd

Here's a new little painting done in oil on canvas 410mm x 310mm available on Trade Me for 10 days, also on Redbubble as a card if you're interested.

Phew it's been a while and time for me to get down to doing a few more little works and putting them up here to view from a distance.  I see them as experimental and more play than work, but I prefer to learn through doing (it myself!), than being taught - also I love to try the odd approach just 'cos I can.  I will once again try to commit to a regular update here - good motivation.  So please pop in whenever... and thanks for looking ..e^)
