On the Island of Crete, great people and characters. I loved the cool shadows in the afternoon sun - lifted me every time. Lots of scooters and's one!

Fiddle Break

Oil on gesso panel - 7x5 in


Taking in the atmosphere at this year's Warwick Folk Festival, this fiddler in the late sun was meant to be painted! I always love the impromtu sessions. There's a few more of these clamouring to get painted!

7"x5" Oil on gesso panel.

These scooters have so much character - posing and demanding to be painted!

Now summer looks to be fading, I'm getting busy in the studio with starting small paintings from Crete, France and the folk festival at Warwick. (Keeps the summer going)!

 8" x 8" Oil on gesso board


From my visit last summer to the small village of Flayosc in the south of France. Looking back on the photos - just had to get some of them down in oils. So, this is the first of hopefully several.
