Happy 7th Birthday to the most special little human I've ever known ❤️

I'm happy to announce the launch of my new website My new site is more curated to give you a better appreciation of my growing ‘storm’ and 'abstract' collections, as well as displaying works I have never shown before! As previously announced, I am also introducing three Limited Edition Prints (Editions of 10) based on what I consider “touchstone” paintings I have made in past years.

TB ..Thanks Kai Lol

This STORM is a mile stone for me, despite it still verging more on the illustrative side of what a Storm would look like. I've used certain abstract qualities to enhance the 'moodiness', but I have further to go (just not with this painting or else it would be destroyed!). I knew when to stop here which is a sign I am on the right track ;-) Title: STORM
Medium: Oil
Size: 40 x 60 x 1.5"
(not for sale yet!)

the inspiration for this painting is volcanic fire... a metaphor for 'passion'?

There are endless ways I can create this storm painting.... so many styles I want to use, so many methods to do this. I'm using acrylic here where I have to struggle with it's notoriously quick dying time, and as a result, act and think quickly. It's frustrating but rewarding when you do break through... wish me luck Lol..
