Well, I for one am glad it's a new year. 2009 was unfortunately a very bad year for many reasons but I'm already feeling far more positive about 2010. I'm hoping to be able to produce more of my own original paintings this year and get back to exhibiting and am also looking at a couple of 3 day country shows to attend to help promote my work.
In the meantime, I'm glad to say I'm currently busy with commissions and below are a couple that I have recently finished. The first is of Westie, a stunning grey and is a large painting at 24x20". I really enjoy doing different posed paintings like this, it's great to have a change from the usual head portrait.
And this is Cab, a flat coated Retriever from America, yet another handsome boy. This painting was also quite large at 20x16". Unfortunately, I'm having problems sending out paintings at the moment though, I need to send both these paintings via courier but England has had some very unusual snowy weather of late and the lane up to our house is covered in snow and I'm not holding out much hope that a courier will attempt to drive to our house to pick up the paintings so I need to sort something out! Quite what, I haven't yet figured out but I need to find a solution.
