When winning a race its tradition to raise you hands in a salute. Here i shown that classic pose, but its all about the journey and the celebration. “Winning is fun…. Sure. But winning is not the point. Wanting to win is the point. Not giving up is the point. Never letting up is the point. Never being satisfied with what you’ve done is the point.” —Pat SummittOil on plywood

Ballet dancers leaping across the stage. The yellow adds a pure dream like quality to the setting. Are they dancing in a field of poppies or is it a reflection? Red clouds or dust? I like making artworks that question while making something beautiful. “Ballet is created on beautiful lines and shapes. If what you hear and what you see mesh, there’s a very thrilling experience.” Martin FridmannOil Painting on Oil paper. 60 x 55cm unframed. dispatched in a tube.

The field at the bottom of the garden of my studio keeps changing. its great to watch the various animals coming through the seasons. This time there were Jacobs sheep. “Jacob sheep originated in the Middle East and are believed to be the oldest breed in the world, being mentioned in the Old Testament Book of Genesis. The Moors brought them into the Iberian Peninsula from North Africa in the eighth century AD, and they were imported into the British Isles in Elizabethan times as an ornament to country house parks. Now established as a mainstream British breed, there are around 8,000 breeding sheep in this country with around 3,000 lambs registered annually.” http://www.jacobsheepsociety.co.ukOil Painting On Gallery Canvas. 76 x 60 x4cm unframed ready to hang.

Poppy often used to come and visit me in my studio. When she went on Holiday with her owner and this was painted from a wonderful image of Poppy on the wet beach. I have used negative space to highlight Poppy against the wet sand. I glazed the entire painting with old tea to give the sand depth. Mixed media painting using oil, acrylic and tea. 68 x 48cm
