  1. Not been around for a while, this virus thing is giving us problems we could do without. Last painting, finished a few weeks ago, not much action in the studio of late. Still we will be upping our efforts soon. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Painting is a magic past time, I get lost in the work and sometimes the painting is finished and you are not aware of it until you sit back and peruse. You should try to start up again Maxi, it’s good for the soul. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Latest painting, due to several problems, art has been on the back foot for a while, finished 5his naughty dog painting yesterday. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. I agree, just overpaid people justifying their existance. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Latest painting is of a red Burmese cat that was my sons, died six months ago aged 16. This is a Christmas present as a reminder of a beautiful cat with a big attitude, would have made a good pro golfer LOL. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  7. Thank you, definitely is a better lifestyle. Quite often reflect what we have compared to what we would have had. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Purchased our first house in 1975, an old Cornish cottage. It was a rubbish tip and required extensive work. We stripped it out to bare walls all through, took us 5 year to complete all the work with us both having full time jobs, but we sold it to move to Australia and it went for 4 times our purchase price, it was our stake for a new life.

  10. This is a cute painting, the dog waiting for his master to arrive home from work. When I paint a picture I like to see the mood of the subject and try to give it that feel, I don’t always succeed but in this instance I think I have. I like subjects that have some complexity as I enjoy messing about with detail, in this one the door, dog wall and path all have a fair amount. Please any other person with art work, let’s see what you have done.
  11. Seems as if I am late into this thread, however at 77 I am happy each morning when I wake up and take the first breath of a new day, having a good breakfast then going into the studio to paint tops it off. Happy days people thank your lucky stars for every day[emoji485] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Give it another try, I was 70+ when I found oil paints. As they say, you are never to old to fall in love ( or to learn how to paint) [emoji16] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Talking about my favourite paintings. We, that is my wife, son and myself each did a painting which is hung up only at Christmas. This is mine and it has a story. The bear is an actual toy bear that was purchased for my wife aged three when she was in hospital as a child, she has looked after it since then and it still has a place in our home, so the bear is 71 years old.

  14. We all have different talents and sometimes we have unfound talents, me it was art 77 now and have only been oil painting for 5 years, tried other mediums but could not make them work. Now .i paint as often as possible,making up for lost time. This is a painting I did late last year, one of my favourites
  15. We have chickens in our back garden so this picture was fun to paint. Even the animals can photo bomb. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
