My semi-annual update

As before, I have been posting work steadily to my 'public' Facebook page (ie you don't have to be a member to view it). But will also try to keep work posted here. Some of these pieces are available, some not.

First I will talk about a sculpture or two.

I started this horse, an Arabian, in about 2011 and then set it aside for 3 years before finally pulling it back out and completing it. The piece is an edition of 14 and measures 10" high x 14" long x 6" wide, before basing. The base is black granite and the patina a classic brown bronze.

All last winter I had the good fortune of being able to watch a Red Fox vixen frequent my neighbor's yard. As a result I painted many paintings of her and then decided I needed to sculpt her as well. The result is "Bright-eyed..." measuring 14" high by 16" wide by 8" wide. It is self-based and has a classic red-brown bronze patina. The edition is 10.

In the meantime I have also been painting a lot of small panels as well as a variety of larger sizes. Here are some of the recent ones that are still available unless otherwise stated.

Well, how embarrassing!

Embarrassing that it has been over a year since I last posted in the blog. I have been painting, really! But have posted mostly on my facebook page (see sidebar for the link) and have therefore neglected this. (FYI, my Facebook Inkwell page is set for 'public' so anyone can view it, I do believe even without having a Facebook account.

But anyway, I will attempt to rectify this sin of omission by posting a Whole Bunch Of Paintings. And a scratchboard too. Just one. OK, 2. Just 2.

Watching Fox (6x6)
Reflective (28x12)

Looking Back (11x14)
 Lots of fox art because a young vixen has been hanging out near my house, giving me a lot of wonderful opportunities to observe and photograph her. Many more paintings will follow; I will keep watching for her but I suspect that once it warms up she will be avoiding the warmth of the sun rather than seeking it out on these chilly days of late winter.

 Of course I have deer to watch, photograph and paint.
