|Watching you ,watching me ..... Oil on canvas 40" x 30" Sold|
Jack is now seven and has out grown the little "Jack the lad" look , i feel quite sad to have left that little fella behind but at the same time i am very proud to see him growing up into the lovely little boy he is , i have his black engine drivers hat hanging on the wall in the studio and it looks very lonely indeed .
I still have a massive amount of photos of him from when he was around 4 years old so i will use them as reference material for some time yet , i have recently done about 10 paintings of him age seven , they are of him fishing and generally messing about on the river , most of them are set in the early evening with the sun setting behind him which gives a nice reflection in the water and a silhouette appearance to Jack , ( i will post one on here soon ) i am pleased with them and will be doing a few more.
I have 11 exhibitions planned before Christmas starting with Glasgow on the 29th September so will post the details on here soon .

|Ring of bright water - New ltd Edition|
Ring of bright water
This painting depicts a little boy standing ankle deep in a puddle of clear water , he probably still has his shoes on and there are probably no fish in there to catch but that will not deter him, as far as he is concerned its full of fish and he's going to catch them no matter how long it takes !.
The title of this painting is from the 1969 film Ring of bright water , a little bit dated now but still a wonderful touching story about a man and his pet otter , i went to the pictures to see this film when i was a boy and the images have stuck with me . I think this painting has a connection to the film somehow but will let you figure that one out for your self !

|Especially for you ltd Edition|
|The naughty step ltd Edition|
|The one that got away|
|My little black book|
|Alfie Baboon Butt|
I am sitting looking at the last months paintings hanging on the studio walls, overall i am pleased with them , when i paint , i start and finish and thats that , i have learned the hard way not to go back to them and mess around, its a bit like your signature, if you signed your name then went back over it to correct it a little , no matter how careful you are "only you" would be able to notice that it wasn't normal.
I have started to paint Alfie, our little Jackhuahua pup in to some of the paintings , he has what i call a "baboons butt" ( see photo ) , his tail sticks up to much, it kind of goes up and towards his head , it is proving difficult as he is normally facing in to the picture !, its a good job he only has a little Chihuahua Butt , i think i will have to drop his tail down now and again. Three of the paintings shown above are newly published Limited Editions available rom your local Castle Galleries. Here are two links to a couple of videos that people unknown to me made recently showing my paintings on Youtube i was well chuffed Video 1 ....... Video 2 ... Note about making comments : In the past when people write a comment ( see below ) it used to show straight away but i just noticed tonight that i have about 20 unread comments waiting for me to ok them , this surprised me as they normally show instantly as i say , anyway some are just people advertising there own businesses so i deleted them and have published the rest , so i would like to thank some of those who kindly left a comment a while back and i never replied , Breenster from Whylam hope you enjoy the painting / James Whitehurst Artist / Maggie B from Yorkshire / Rahina Artist / Senna : ) / Stephanie Moule / Diana Marshall Artist / Bonnie Heather / Lowrisian Artist and Sarah from Milton Keynes.
