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

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:-

Another Biggie…

‘Isla’ 60x60cm £195

Following the sale of my big canvas (well, big for me anyway) ‘Stag In Water’, I thought I’d see if another biggie would be of interest to someone.  This ‘heilan coo’ is acrylic on a 60x60cm canvas and was great fun to paint in all her shagginess!

“Isla” will be ‘hoofing it’ down to my display wall at the Garrion Bridges in the next day or two.
