The Shooting Star

This painting was made to celebrate the life of a friend, who passed away recently.
It was commissioned by his sister and given as a gift to his daughter.

She had seen a shooting star on the night he passed and informed her aunt that the star was her dad.

This is the painting that commemorates that incident.

I love visiting the sea, watching the waves and feeling the spray. There's a sense of wildness and freedom about it.
I also know there are many creatures below the surface, who have a freedom of their own.

Here's one such, in watercolour...

The Evolution Series, a collection of primates

When I painted the first of these primates, a good friend suggested I should called the painting "Evolution" .

I liked the name and it also inspired me to paint a couple more, using different techniques. So here you have the complete "Evolution Series"

I hope you enjoy them.

The Lone Tree

Recently I painted the view at Milarrochy Bay, Loch Lomond - and I though it had a bit of an Oriental feel to it - so I decided to paint the scene again and this time try to really push the Oriental feel.

Hence I now have this painting:

My version of a Highland Cow.

Everywhere we go in Scotland, we see images of Highland Cows (Coos)
I fancied painting one, but wanted to make it a little different.
So here is my version of a Coo..


thanks for looking!
