12 Common Life Mistakes
was a short lived exhibition of paintings held in my home town on the night of the 6th of April 2017
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.

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.....
oil on canvas 2015-16
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.
