Twisted Tango

This is the first time in a very long time that I have created a painting of such proportion and I can’t tell you how much I missed the ability to express my freedom, dancing on the canvas once again.

If I had more money and perhaps a studio, I would be painting like this more often. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Welcome to my world.

Pistolero Blues

This painting depicts a gunslinging cowboy under the hot red sun orrrr it’s a nice collage of blues and reds and oranges, which combined make a composition to fill your hall or living room. What I see is the first. Hence its title Pistolero Blues. I really hope you enjoy it and it is suitable to hang straight away. All of the sides are painted so if you don’t want to no need to frame.

Rose Tinted Glasses

Difficult to see when looking at the photo, but this and my previous 2 or 3 paintings are all textured, done with acrylic on canvas. This allows you not only to look at the painting but to get up close and feel the painting and if you close your eyes and feel long enough you may even get to feel the rhythm of the artist’s heartbeat when I created it. It’s ready to hang, hope you enjoy it!

Figurante is my first painting of 2019.I used, what I think are very beautiful warm colours to warm you up in the winter.I especially like the permanent alizarin crimson that I have mixed with orange and yellow hue to highlight the dark figurante in the center.As usual, it’s so difficult to get the colours to show up as they appear in real life.It’s on box canvas, so ready to hang.
