Here we go. This is my latest oil painting and I like the way it turned out. I usually like to paint from my own references but this time I got some help. This painting was "completed under the direction of Jacqueline Gnott's dvd". What a privilege to be guided by such a wonderful artist.

What is it you do that lights you up inside?.....I can definitely say "painting" does it for me. I painted this glowing flower from a picture this time. The picture was taken by Thom Brommerich brilliant photographer. I have enjoyed painting this gorgeous flower from start to finish. I felt a warm feeling deep inside me when the painting was finally finished. Hope this painting lights you up in some wonderful ways. Thank you for visiting my blog.

We all have at times difficulties in life. So what is there to do? Finding the way!.....More often than not, just listen to your heart. This kangaroo is about to find his way. On a lighter note, is it just me, or is this kangaroo trying to stick his tongue out..... at life? You tell me!

I wanted to post this, even if the painting is not finished yet. It shows how much work goes into each piece I create. There are no shortcuts and hopefully this painting will be finished soon.

I have been away for quite a few weeks......visiting family and friends in Paris and the French Alps and also doing some skiing in the magnificent French Alps in Savoie. That was simply wonderful and exhausting.....in a very good way.
Now back at work but more importantly back in my studio where I started painting again. It took me some planning to get me going but I am now getting back into the enjoyable and sometimes frustrating process of oil painting. I am working on a painting at the moment that seems to be testing my abilities as a painter/artist. It is difficult to explain but it is a bit like a relationship. One must work at it to make it work and that is what I am doing at the moment. Luckily there will be a finished painting in the next few weeks.
