ArtyA Watch project

I have just received word from Yvan Arpa of ArtyA Watches, that the handpainted woman's dial "Cosmos / Beautiful Planet" I created has been cased and assembled and will be photographed within the next few days. I am excited to see the completed watch. The man's watch will be completed next week.

In the Studio

I have had a number of people ask me why I am painting still life lately and on such a small scale. Quite simply the reason is, that I am enjoying the more structured nature of painting these still life forms. There is a real meditative quality to looking into, at and around a simple white bowl or cup, or whatever the object is and trying to capture it. I am also working on a small scale out of necessity because while working on the larger "Nuage" pieces (which is still ongoing) I found that it was very stressful on my back and hip, so working on this smaller scale, gives me some time to recuperate and still allows me to work.

Works in situ

I found these photographs sent to me of my works in domestic settings.
It is always nice to see them outside of the studio/gallery environment and in 'real' world situations.

"Desert Light"- Oil on Canvas

"Flight over the Gibber Plains" - Oil on Canvas- 2 Panels

"Last Light"- Oil on Canvas
