A Few of My Favourite Things

 

A Few of My Favourite Things is derived in part from the Stewartry countyside where I live, and where the rooks descend on the fields as soon as the crops are harvested. I had to add in a cat (Foxy) and some poppies, two of my best-loved subjects. When not painting, I am an avid crossword puzzler, hence the final favourite 'thing'!
 
The picture is painted in acrylic on a box canvas.
I always paint the sides of the canvas in keeping with the front picture, so that it may be hung as it is, or can be framed if the purchaser wishes, without fear of uncovered canvas being revealed.
 
The canvas is 50x40cm and is priced £70.00 (P&P extra)
 

Home and Abroad

 

I love going to Spain to paint, because the weather is usually so good that I can paint outdoors. This painting, however, is derived from an original water colour which was painted inside a Spanish studio, because it was raining outside. The room, and the view are Spanish, but the picture on the wall is of Threave Castle, just a few miles from my home. 
 
The picture is painted in acrylic, is mounted and framed, and measures 53x43cm. Price £85.00 (P&P extra)
 
It would not post easily, but could be sold as a mounted picture, and the price adjusted accordingly.
 

Town and Country

Town and Country is derived in part from the Stewartry countyside where I live, and where the rooks descend on the fields as soon as the crops are harvested; and in part on the 'town' (city, really) of Durham, where I went to university and which holds a special place in my heart.

The picture is painted in acrylic on a box canvas 50x40cm and is priced £70.00 (P&P extra)
