  • A Piece a Week 21 – Still Life with Emotion

    I learned a stack of things from this painting. I’ve certainly learnt that I know more than I thought I did and it has been exciting getting positive results from subjects I hadn’t even considered attempting.

  • A Piece a Week 17 – Nightlight

    I was putting my youngest daughter to bed a couple of nights ago and as she snuggled up to her doll, I was struck by her pose. I grabbed my camera and as she fell asleep (she was very tired, we were up late) I snapped some very blurry photos of her

  • A Piece a Week 16 – Dahlia

    I did a little bit of gardening yesterday and during my trips between the front yard and the backyard I kept encountering a particular dahlia.

  • A Piece a Week 15 – The Purple Chair WIP
