I have just finished this painting of "Luna" our friends' Spinone. Sadly poor Luna died in an accident a couple of weeks ago. Frida(our German Shepherd) lost her best friend. Luna was a beautiful dog , and Incredibly well trained. My painting shows her on a bird hunt last winter.

This mini shows Ello's Beach on Leeds creek. This is a favourite picnic site for boaters. The beach is located just before the creek joins the Miles river. It belongs to the "Pink Castle" ( actually an Italian villa which according to the locals, was moved here in the 20's brick by brick from the Italian Riviera. (Michael Jackson recently tried to buy it... The villa not my painting!!
Here's a new painting "Gassing UP" oil 12x9. It shows St Michaels harbour on a summer weekend. Lots of colour and bustle. St Michaels is very proud of outwitting the Brits during the war of Independance, by raising all the lights of the town so that the Brits fired over the town. Ive also heard that the British fleet thought St Michaels wasn't worth the effort so the sailed past ha ha.Anyway we are all friends now and as a Brit I enjoy seeing all those Union Jacks fluttering in the harbour. I love St Michaels... I got married there.
