  1. Hi All,

    Recently I visited the beautiful South Africa and was amazed by seeing endangerd animals in their natural habitat. I came home and tried to put my experiences down on canvas as best I could to recapture some of the magical moments. I thought I would share these with you.

    Elephants have always been a favourite of mine, I'll never tire of watching them. It was great seeing the younger one holding on to his brother's tail, a good composition to paint with their Mum just behind.

    We travelled over this river bed many times and I never failed to be drawn to the beautifully graceful Impala who crossed it too. There were so many herds of them.

  2. Hi All

    I hope that you are enjoying summer which is whizzing by so fast. Music has been very theraputic part of mine, inspiring me to paint how I feel when I'm part of a pop concert and to express what the lyrics mean to me. The series of paintings below are based on Coldplay's current world tour and this summer's pyramid stage at Glastonbury. There are also 25 limitedlimited prints available of each.

    I painted Monet's garden below many years ago and it has been hanging in my lounge ever since. I have just released 25 limited edtion prints as a reminder of summer and peaceful times.
