Beautiful Bindweed

It's only a weed they say but wild flowers are every bit as glorious as their cultivated relations.
I was stuck by the intensity of this Bindweed against the sun dappled dark undergrowth. Painting takes my mind off my little problems and more importantly all the horrible things going on in this world. These flowers keep reminding me there is beauty and goodness too.

Acrylic on canvas. 40cm x 30cm

The Bridge

I have always loved the contrast between light and dark early in the morning or in the evening. This painting is of strong evening sunlight picking out a little bridge across a small stream. It is acrylic on a large canvas. 60cm x 60cm ( 24" x 24" )  The title is ' The Bridge ' and is available to purchase.

Mo Farah. Gracious Human Being. Great Athlete

I was thrilled by the wonderful second gold medal Mo won at the Moscow world championships. I was only one of hundreds of thousands of emotionally moved spectators. I was moved, not only by the race, but by the man himself. He is a truly gracious gentleman in all senses of the word.Really happy for him.
