As a painter, you might say I am a fervid painter in oils -- none of that watery stuff! It's the choice of so many masters of old: inspired and self-controlled. I see oil as being the best foil for visual expression and interpretation: paint it thin or thick, landscape or skyscape,, drape it or scrape it. To underlay or overlay oil is the only way. Nor is one stuck with paper -- there's cotton or linen on frames, or card or board or timber or mdf; two dimensions or three, with or without a frame. There are many artists whom I admire but way in front of all of them are Velazquez and Turner. I find much satisfaction in painting and not least in solving the technical and artistic problems involved. This is why I do not repeat scenes or subjects -- there seems little point in doing the same things repeatedly. It is also an exciting kind of work and, when not actually involved in it, I find myself preoccupied with the challenges still waiting to be undertaken. I am self taught and have painted on and off for many years but, for various reasons, it was not until about 2008 that I was able to concentrate continuously on painting. I provide only originals, no copies. All paintings include a free prepossessed frame in the price along with free package and delivery. My approach is traditional and representational, making use of various techniques, including impasto and glazing. My paintings generally fall into one or other categories of landscapes, seascapes, snowscapes, waterscapes, religious and still life and are generally provided with frames and fastenings and so are ready to hang. I hope you may like some of them!

I liked the artwork very much.I love Winter and snow scenes.However the dark frame and no mount did not show it to best advantage.I have left it with my local picture framer to rectify this.
