This is similar to a previous painting of mine, but I love the composition (and the model!) so decided to paint her again from a slightly different angle and a reverse/mirror image.  I haven’t come up with a title yet…suggestions would be very welcome.



I recently got the go ahead to start selling greetings cards of my animal portraits at the Garrion Bridges Art & Antiques Centre in the Clyde Valley.  I was really pleased with the print quality of these cards and hope my customers will be too.



I spotted this hunk of loveliness while touring around the East coast of Scotland yesterday.  He looked a bit Churchillian, as though he was about to start addressing a crowd, so I took a snap as reference material for a future painting, but couldn’t resist sharing him with everyone first.  I hope he’s called ‘Winston’.
