This was a work in progress for ages. All of a sudden it just seemed finish-able. Maybe an expression of lockdown frustration! Incandescent, 30cm X 30cm oil on canvas.
I love colour on a dark background. This is quite huge! I need a bigger workspace…)
If you can keep your head, when all about you, are losing theirs and blaming you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting you.
20cm X 20cm oil on canvas.
Available to order from the gallery. £2.50 each or £10.00 for five. I’m a bit biased but they look fabulous!
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink. Not sure who this is but I love her. Keep my glass full until morning light…
I started the year off by painting two neutral nudes. I think they’re done? I’m leaving them for now anyway… Elation and Statuesque.

Not sure what could have inspired me to paint these two?
‘You Know I’m No Good’ – July 2019, 30cm x 30cm acrylic on canvas
Meet you dowstairs in the bar and hurt,
Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt,
You say ‘What did you do with him today?’,
And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray,
‘Cause you’re my fella my guy,
Hand me your Stella and fly,
By the time I’m out the door,
You tear men down like Roger Moore,
I cheated myself,
Like I knew I would,
I told you I was trouble,
You know that I’m no good,
Upstairs in bed with my ex boy,
He’s in a place but I can’t get joy,
Thinking on you in the final throes,
This is when my buzzer goes,
Run out to meet you, chips and pitta,
You say ‘when we married’,
’cause you’re not bitter,
‘There’ll be none of him no more’,
I cried for you on the kitchen floor,
Who doesn’t love a good Amy lyric or two?
‘Bleeding Florals 1&2’ 30cm x 30cm acrylics on canvas.
I loved painting these – very imperfect and the dripping paint caused palpitations but I really like the pinks and reds on the dark grey background.
