This is the last post for a week or so as I will be exhibiting at the Moothall Hexham from 1st to 7th June, The Moothall is a lot like a old dungeon , infact it was a court room 800 years ago or so, A small Exhibiting room within a very old stone building with walls 4ft thick and a stone spiral stair case that you are not allowed access to !! its brilliant at the top "Shh"

ta ta for now.


This painting was not easy for me, I dont know why ,I am pleased its over and done with.

Moving On

One of a number of small paintings for my Exhibition at the Moot Hall, Hexham, Northumberland.


I was a little doubtful as to the outcome of this painting as its difficult to paint colour in shade, before I started it I had decided to bin it so I was not worried about painting it quickly , which I always do, anyway its worked out ok, so I will keep it .

Man with Dog

My paintings are not for sale in many Galleries at all, only two local ones actually.
The reason being that I have only been painting again for about a year and can not settle on a theme , I am looking for something but dont quite know what it is yet !!!

Another painting of High Bridge , a small road in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne that connects the Big Market to Grey Street.
I had originaly worked on a few sketches and one painting while actualy in the street but found it difficult to paint the figures from life, small figures are no problem but if the figure dominates the painting I must work in the studio.
I have been sitting out side in Corbridge Market Square and at Tesco sketching people quickly as they wander in and out to get some practice in, unbelievably I once got moved on as people didnt like me looking at them and someone complained, I must say that made my blood boil.
This painting is on display at Off The Wall Gallery, Corbridge Northumberland.
There is a a large version of this painting also it is 24"x12"
