Blue Chicken Series

Blue Cockerel and Hen
 My original colourful blue chicken pictures have been sold and seem to have struck a chord. Consequently I have painted four new paintings in the Blue Cockerels and Hens series. These are now mounted and framed in striking red frames which measure 40cm x 30cm.The size of each picture is 30cm x 20cm. There will also be prints available shortly. All will be uploaded on to my web site within the next week.  or email me if you would like to buy one or more before then.They would look great in a kitchen, bathroom or children's bedroom.

Bradley Wiggins and the Garden Shed

In a previous post ' What Men Need ' ( scroll down to popular posts ) I mentioned garden sheds as a refuge for men.
In a new twist we learn that Bradley Wiggins used his garden shed to maintain his peak fitness after crashing in the Tour de France 2011 and breaking his collar bone. Forced to retire, he returned home to his garden shed in Ecclestone, Lancashire. With his shoulder strapped up he put his bike on rollers and pedalled away in his shed!
The rest is history. He won this years Tour de France and a gold medal in the London Olympics.
So the message is clear men. Make that shed more than a place to store house overflows. Make it your special refuge to meditate, study or train and emerge refreshed to achieve new heights.

Avenue of Trees. Languedoc-Roussillon.France.

This is another painting from my time in France with my brother. This magnificent avenue of trees leads to a wine producing domaine and is rather typical of domaine entrances. This was my last attempt ( the previous two were awful ) and with some helpful suggestions from Tony I managed to pull this one together. It has been framed and is for sale. The painting is acrylic and is framed in a understated gold frame which measures 62cm x 48cm. It has a double mount in off white and the painting size is 44cm x 30cm. The price is £200.00. If interested please contact me. Thank you for looking.
