"My heart is in my eyes"...

Updated: 2018-02-07T22:32:42.959+00:00


Wee scribble...


The last few days I've been saving all of lasts years photographs onto an external hardrive. Yeah I do know I should be doing it as I go along and I do for the first few months, then usually we get into the better weather and I'm out and about gets kinda forgotten. My head is full of images now all scrambled up and although I'm desperate to paint they are all jumbled together and I can't seem to get started. So to break the cycle I picked up a pencil and pad and scribble. Not a great scribble but it's something on paper. Ironically its not from one of this year

"Troon from Dundoald Hill" 8" x 8"


"Troon from Dundonald Hill"
Acrylic 8" x 8" 

I'm sure when you look at paintings there are times when they bring back a memory to you. The same happened to me when I was painting this one. It took me back to when I was young and Mum and Dad would sometimes take us to the beach in summer evenings after Dad got home from work. Dad had an old Ford Consul which we named the Bluebird. That hadn't been it's original colour, Mum painted it blue with house paint. Not I imagine something that would go down well in these days of health and safety but we had it for years without coming to any harm. After having a great time walking and playing on the beach we would get two fish suppers and Dad would drive home through the Loans and up to the layby at the top of Dundonald Hill. On a good day it's an amazing view and was an even more special treat sharing fish and chips out of the newspaper wrapping. Great memories, the view hasn't changed much from then, apart from more houses.

"Douvan" first painting of 2018...


Acrylic 10" x 12"

First painting of 2018 is a portrait of the mighty Douvan trained in Ireland by Wullie Mullins. He's sidelined at the moment but here's hoping we will see him back at the races next year.
If you a racing or Douvan fan this one is available from the studio. Contact details on the website

"Caravaggio" Acrylic 8" x 8" £270


Acrylic 8" x 8"
Available from the studio.

Wanted to paint this fella for a long time, so on Monday passed I decided that it was a case of no time like the present. First time I saw him he reminded me of Walter Farley's Black Stallion books, because although he's officially grey, as a two year old he was almost black. Handsome and super fast on his good days, (Aidan O'Brien says he is the only horse at Ballydoyle to hit a top speed of 45 miles per hour) he captured my heart. I've portrayed him as his coat is turning to grey. Many thanks go to Michael R Smithson once again for kindly letting me use his photos as reference. Painted on a linen panel with clear gesso, using Atelier Acrylics.

Work in progress...


Wasn't in the studio today but this is the progress I've been making on the moo I'm painting. I'm trying to work bigger while keeping a loose style, this one is 10" x 14" which admittedly isn't big in some circles, but considering I've been working on teeny weeny 6" x 6" for a few years it's big for me. The main thing is I'm starting to get that feeling of painting is the first thing on my mind when I wake and the last thing I think about before I go to bed...that's good :)

Cold morning walk...


Very cold walking the dogs this morning on the country path, not helped by forgetting my gloves. That said, the walk was most enjoyable with crunching leaves underfoot and a smell of autumn in the air. Good to get back in the house though and have a warm cup of tea and now ready to make in roads on this painting of moo. It has been sitting on the sidelines waiting patiently for it's!

Lilly's Portrait...

Just realised I hadn't shared Lilly's portrait on my Blog. I know there were a few follower's on here who had asked why I hadn't painted her when I did the painting of Buddy. It was really just a time issue I always had something else on the go. But finally got round to it and here she is in all her!

British Summer Time Ends


Not quite sure where this year has gone but here we are at the last Saturday in October and the end of British Summer Time. Have to admit it hasn't been the nicest of days in fact it's been wet and windy for most of it. But then so has most of October, here's hoping it starts to get a bit more seasonal from now on, a wee touch of frost would be nice. One thing we do get to look forward to is an extra hour in bed, so don't forget to put the clock back an hour.
