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

 

The ‘C’ Word…

No, not that one…! It’s now 21 weeks to – dare I mention it – Christmas, so if you would like a portrait of your furry (or feathered) friend painted from your photos, why not contact me to get yours ordered?  The sooner the better.

Animal portraits make a wonderful gift, either for yourself or for someone special.  Prices from £50 for a small pastel on paper.

Here’s an example, this is Rocco, acrylic on canvas:-

‘Rocco’ commission

Something New…

I found these pre-packed mounts in Cass Art and thought I would try doing some smaller pastels to fit them.  I’ve made a start with a little Westie and a German Shepherd just to see how they do on my wall at the Garrion Bridges Antiques and Art centre.

As well as improving the presentation of the paintings, it allows the buyer to use or select their own frame which they can buy ‘off the peg’ as the mounts are standard sizes.  The clear sleeves protect the pastels and allows a price to be attached to the painting without any damage to the paper or the mount.

Let’s see how they do.

 

The Eyes Have It

With apologies to the UK parliamentary system but sometimes phrases can be twisted slightly to suit a subject.  Certainly the model for this portrait, Tigger, says it all with his eyes.  This was a recent commission to be given as a Christmas gift.  Acrylic on canvas.

  

The Best Way To Give A Dog At Christmas

Although it’s the time of year when impulses take over reasoned thinking, let’s just slow down and make sure that giving a cute little bundle of fun to someone as a Christmas gift is really the right thing to do.  

If you still think a pooch is what they would like, why not give them a very well behaved one that doesn’t need walkies or scooping after?!

Here are a few gift ideas, OR you can commission me to paint a beloved four legged friend from your photos, for a truly original gift.

Happy Christmas Everyone 🎅🏻🎄
