Fox finished

I really like how this turned out, my mind is racing with more ideas for new paintings in this style now.

Abstract Fox, work in progress

Still on an abstract kick at the moment and started this fox today on a 16" x 20" stretched canvas.  Lots of work to do still but the basics are there.  I really enjoy doing these paintings, I find them relaxing and that's what I need at the moment.  I promise I will get back to coloured pencil again soon.

Abstract Bird

First of all I wanted to mention that my blog is not letting me reply to comments left on my blog, have no idea why its not working but thank you Lyn for your comment on my previous blog post.

Well I have started off the year with something very different, an abstract bird.  Oil on Gessobord, 9" x 12".  I've had a good response to this painting on various art forums so I think it's definitely a style worth pursuing.

Goodbye Dad....

My Dad passed away on the 8th of January, aged 72.  This is how I prefer to remember him, the way he used to be years ago before suffering a brain injury in 2006.  He was a very funny man, always joking.  He was also very talented at many different things .  He loved painting, gardening, travelling, playing the organ and movies (especially Westerns).  He worked as a Sales Manager for Singapore Airlines for over 30 years and was one of the most hardworking people I've ever known.  Goodbye Dad, you will be sadly missed....
