Early Morning, Pipers Creek


I've never really been an early bird because I'm scared of catching worms.

Autumn Sunset, Rosebery Hill, Pipers Creek


Landscape oil painting of trees with autumn leaves and cast shadows.

Still Life with Copper Pot

Still life oil painting of a copper pot, a knife, two onions, a small copper jug, a pepper grinder and an antique bottle.
This painting, somewhat larger than many of my efforts, took four sessions.  I was being a bit of a fuss pot.

Still Life with Quinces and Pumpkin


Still life oil painting of two quinces, a pumpkin and an earthenware bottle.

Still Life with Tomato and Copper Jug

Still life oil painting of a tomato, a copper jug, an antique whisky bottle surrounded by a sheet.
There's still life in the old blog yet (or indeed, the old mailing list or InstantGramme or whichever platform you're reading this on).

Wooden Elephant with Quince

Still life oil painting of a small carved wooden elephant beside a quince.
I maintain a schedule of almost daily painting in the hope it will bear fruit.  Still waiting for the bear fruit, so elephant fruit will have to do for now.

Still Life with Onions and Ceramic Cup

Still life oil painting of two onions, a copper vase and a green ceramic cup amongst dark blue drapery.
These onions were bought from my local fruit and veg shop, the cup and vase each came from a second-hand shop and the sheet came from Target.  That's the story of my still life.

Still life is just a bowl of bananas (and an eggplant and a goblet).

Copper Pot with Garlic Bulbs and Lemon

Still life oil painting of a copper pot beside two garlic bulbs and a lemon.
Lemons are yellow, copper are pots;
And garlic's related to leeks and shallots.
