A RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS (BUY A BOAT)

The show featured a Selection of my paintings amassed over the last five years, including this one of Courtown Harbour ‘yet again!’… but then, it is one of my favourites pieces so I don't much mind wheeling it out for people to see.

This Golden Acre Painting has been around for awhile too - but I think I am finally happy with how it looks, so I am contented to let it go out into the world and maybe find a home.

BATHERS AND OTHER PEOPLE IN HI-VIZ JACKETS

BATHERS AND OTHER PEOPLE IN HI-VIZ JACKETS

Is a painting from circa 2014 (and it’s probably not the first time that I've posted it to this site) but hey, it's a striking ‘Image’ that works well on screen.

the show also featured this painting of a Little Red house on a Side Street in Dundee, the subject being the Labour Party and a bright red gate - make of that what you will.....

RECURRING HISTORY PAINTING CONT....

RECURRING HISTORY PAINTING CONT....

This was one of the newest Paintings in the show,  even though it could easily have been started c2015 or even earlier if memory serves (I am a very slow painter) but it is of interest here as the use of glass and layered imagery is indicative of my newer work - of which I hope to produce a new show sometime later this year…  keep an eye on the website for details.
