A bespoke frame has been kindly donated by my framer Doug Rousse of Lake Tahoe Master Framing - thank you Doug! Tickets are still available - come on over it's all for a very good cause.*

Pitcher & Peaches

Bid For this painting on Ebay!

I was given a few beautiful white pitchers by a friend, Lon Marie who is clearing out because she's moving to Hawaii to marry hunky surfer/artist Derek Glaskin - how exciting! I couldn't wait to get them home and start painting them - their simple forms are stunning, and the effect of different light on them has given me lots of ideas. Expect lots more of these paintings!

What is Art?

I love this, it's brilliant fun! I nicked it off my artist friend Donald Neff's blog, who nicked it off another artist...isn't that part of what art's all about? watch this and see.
