Latest Paintings

 Here are my latest efforts, all either 16" x 12" or 11' x 15"

'Black-Tailed Godwit" 

Pueblo Man - This went down like a lead balloon.

North American Porcupine - I thought this might do better than it has.


Most of the reactions to my paintings are disappointing in that they get few likes. The exceptions are mainly Squirrels and Hares but I don't want to paint just them. There have been a few exceptions. A lot of people like to see the whole of the paper covered with paint otherwise paintings are "unfinished". I prefer  unfinished ones and try and follow my late guru Charles Reid's mantra of not finishing a painting but at a certain point just 'stop'. It suits my temperament I suppose. Of course if I had a "name"😀
