From 2014, a view of an autumnal oak ridge near home in South Wilts/Dorset, done in sub hurricane conditions initially and then wrestled with for two subsequent autumns. Very thickly painted, just beginning to experiment with a pink ground, now the only large painting left from previous shows. 32x44 inches oil on canvas and framed. Currently to be seen with my friend @james_harvey_art_dealer in @glebegallerywiltshire. Alistair's organic dairy herd making an appearance...
Loving the excellent service at @wincantonprintltd. Proofing postcards and fliers for my Swiss show. If you want I'll send you one... Theyre nice and stiff with a lovely gloss laminate!

Last throes of our herbaceous border today. Cosmos, leggy lavender, alium seedheads and tatty topiary. Going to let it go down in a blaze of glory...#wiltshire #village #morefuntoplanthanmaintain

Unfinished version of Sanna Bay, Ardnamurchan peninsula. 24x30 inches. Looking and looking and looking again at colours which simply defy credibility #winedarkseas #Muck #Rhum #Coll #Ardnamurchan #youcanthandlethetruth #nowheretohide #recollectedintranquillity
