Hide 20" × 30" Charcoal

Found this old one in the corner of the studio! No idea why it doesn't have pride of place in my house! My boy Andrew , hiding from his brother no doubt, desperately missed.

Doodling with I

I shall very likely go back in here. It needs more dark in the foreground and texture,  maybe even colour!

That Letter  50cm x 60cm  Acrylic  

 I found this painting that I did years ago, really couldn't decide what subject to paint on it. t won a prize in a local show.
I was reminded how iI used to enjoy slapping on the paint with acrylics. It didn't seem to matter  if proportions, colour, etc, weren't exactly right. Acrylics were made to have fun with!
This huge, (for me) canvas, 80cm x 100cm has been looking at me for a long time. I really 
couldn't decide what subject to paint on it. Inspired by friend Helen Breach and remembering times and paintings past , I started! That is a lot of space to fill up!
