Over the recent summer I've tried to paint a variety of subjects with varying success but the heap of reject paintings is bigger than the folder of finished saleable pictures! Its been a good learning experience but I've come back to painting what I love - garden plants and in particular exotics! I guess when anyone is passionate about something, it is bound to affect they way they paint and I feel far more satisfied with a few recent exotic plant paintings. Cannas, Ricinus, bananas, Colocassia and other dramatic foliage is very much my style of planting! Pity but many of them won't grow here in Palm Springs - too hot in contrast to the struggles with cold I used to have in the UK!
A bigger range of my paintings is viewable on the watercolour page, complete with sizes and prices. For any local readers, a selection of my work is on view in the gallery at the Desert Art Center.
