Magnus

Lovely hunk ‘Magnus’ is now up for sale on my storefront on Saatch Art Online and Artfinder.com – I’m only half hoping he’ll find a new home, as I’ve become quite fond of the big fella!  Oil on canvas 61 x 61cmimage

 

Coco….

Just completed this commission of a Highland Cow and having used a mix of reds and blacks she resulted in a chocolatey look to her hair so I’ve temporarily christened her Coco.  Bit of varnish, attach the loops and cord and off she goes to her new home 🐮🎨

Choosing a title

One of the tricky parts to creating and selling paintings is probably the simplest….choosing a title on completing the work.   This latest one, an oil painting on canvas of a Highland Bull, caused a bit of a brain freeze so I asked for help via social media. This resulted in clever and well thought out suggestions.

The winning title I chose is ‘Magnus’ – a Scottish name meaning ‘Greatness’ – well suited for this big beefcake I think!image
