A great tit painting. I’m thinking of calling it The Local Cafe. :-) Snowy weather but the birds come for their grub at the feeder and can do a bit of house shopping while they’re there, checking out the bird boxes for the spring season. :-)
This is an 8×8 inch acrylic painting on panel
I will be exhibition at the Feline Art Exhibition at the National Cat Centre in Sussex In April. This is one of the paintings going to the show.
The Society Of Feline Artists is holding a new feline art exhibition at Cats Protection in Sussex as part of Cats Protection’s 90th Anniversary celebrations. S.O.F.A. has always supported Cats Protection with yearly donations and the charity will benefit from each sale made at the show. So this is a great way of buying some art and helping cats at the same time.
The show will run from the 28th of April to the 7th of May 2017 at the National Cat Centre.

Here’s a new hare painting, Little Spring Hare. This one is off to the #twitterartexhibit TAE17 UK – a charity art auction to raise money for Molly Olly’s Wishes in Stratford upon Avon 1-19 April 2017.
Another exciting post. This is an international collaboration. I’ve been working on a painting of Burre, a gorgeous Burmese cat who lives in Finland. I’ve painted him as a star cat walking through the dark, starry Finnish night. Once he was finished last year he went off to his new home in Finland to hang on the wall.
But a photo of him went to Kapsch Cases in Croatia to be used on a new cello case for his owner’s cello. And here is a photo of the finished cello case with the model himself posing in front of it. :-)
Very exciting! Musician Greg Sover is using my crow painting ‘Coming In To Land’ on the back of his new album cover Songs Of A Renegade. I’m thrilled that he chose it, what do you think?

I’ve been working on a small Puma painting. I’m thinking of some large paintings of big cats but wanted to start with something a bit smaller with a good excuse to play with lots of colour. So a glorious golden cougar with a blue green background seemed like a great place to start. She is a very colourful girl, a 10×10 inch acrylic painting on a panel. Now I just have to decide on what colour frame to get for her.
Another new London Plane leaf brooch. This one is red and gold with blue tips and touches of iridescent pink. Based on the shape of a leaf from the Brunswick Plane in Brunswick Square Gardens. If you are in London you can see this beautiful tree in Brunswick Square Gardens by Russell Square tube station. It spreads its arms wide and shelters Londoners eating their lunch under it’s huge boughs.
This leaf brooch is red with blue tips and swirls of gold running through it. There are tiny touches of iridescent pink too.
I had fun with this one. :-) I wanted to do a big hare with thick juicy paint. I like this standing pose with the light coming from behind him and his shadow in front of him. He’s painted with thick acrylics using a knife and a brush on a 24×24 inch stretched canvas. I enjoyed it so much I’m tempted to do another large painting soon.
There are many London Plane trees all over the city. Their leaves can grow to a huge size and there’s a big variation in the shapes and colours too. One tree, not far from me, has very dark leaves in Autumn, with dark reds and purples, almost black at the edges when they fall. This brooch is inspired by that tree. It has black edges turning to red and gold in the centre with touches of green and blue here and there.
A big red Maine Coon cat sitting in the sun. I do love painting big ginger fluffballs! This lad is full of colour with pinks, yellows and greens in his coat and teal whiskers.He is painted in watercolour and paint pens on 16×12 inch Fabriano paper.
He comes in a 20×16 inch single mount and a shabby chic frame. The frame is a box frame in wood, lightly painted white and distressed to create a shabby chic style. It’s has acrylic glass to make it safe to ship
