Daisy Lady

8x8 ins Oil on board
I was in the garden today and couldn't resist the daisies Eileen gave us a few years ago. I think it's the contrasting colours that caught my eye after I'd cut the grass and sat down for a rest. There was a bee in there but it just wouldn't stay put.

Father and Son

I like to think it was a father and son on Suscinio beach. Loved the colours.

Men and Buoy

8x8 oil on board
Staying with Suscinio and it's section of rocky sea-weed strewn beach. I loved the trapped pools of colour and rich contrasts.

8x8 Oil on board
An hour stroll along this French beach with my friend David, leaving the girls to doze in the sunshine, brought some interesting sights. I was taken with seaweed, pebbles and the light catching pools of water. There were so many different colours. I'll perhaps re-name this painting when I remember where it was. Not only have I re-named it, but I've also added more detail in the foreground because the figures in the distance were more distinct than the immediate foreground...can't have that!
