"Three Fishes" 6x6 acrylic

Crop, crop, crop - everyone knows that those are three fish on a plate, we don't have to see their entire bodies nor the complete plate to know what's going on.

My thanks to Carol Marine - by studying her work and by reading her latest book I have really learnt a lot. And like a lot of artists I like to paint thick with great impasto.

If you like or want this one (it'll go in a CD mailer, no problem) drop me a note at for a special Blogger price, shhhh.....

"Cockerel" oil 4.5 x 4.5 inches

Lately I have been fascinated by theses birds - cocky rosters and cheeky hens, all painted as miniatures and displayed on tiny wooden easels from the Dollar Store - they make interesting gifts at Christmas time or on family birthdays, anyhow they always fetch a smile....the naughty ones especially!
