I am learning to play the Banjo, ohh yes ! me fingers are killing me , its something I always wanted to do, about ten years ago my wife bought me a mandolin for my birthday, thinking "maybe" that this was what I wanted , I did like the Mandolin and did try to play it but I gave up after a while , I am not going to give up this time , BLUEGRASS is the type of music I will be playing , I have already completed a lot of dance type paintings , one thing I have noticed for sure is the way peolple ( including little Jack ) move when listening to different types of music, there are obviously different types of dance but I am talking about the effects on us as we listen, people listening to classical music generally move there heads from side to side, rock music its up and down, salsa is hips and bluegrass is fingers and feet, I am going to be painting a few more of these pictures .
This weekend I am going down to Birmingham as Washington Green Fine Art will be releasing some more of my paintings as Limited edition prints .
My paintings are completed using oil on board, linen or cotton canvas,i have been painting for a living for 30 years. I paint simple observations of people and city street scenes, my intension is simply to paint on and enjoy, I have exhibited throughout the UK and in the USA . This blog will be updated with new work and Exhibition information every now and again. Thanks for stopping by.
