Kate oil quick study 24 x 18

This one is a real quicky, It's Kate again. I painted it over an old still life painting, hence the Sideways white jug behind her legs... I think it sort of adds something!

"Taking Flight" frame

I have just spent the last 4 days building frames. I was very pleased with the frame for my Egret... Took ages though!!! I'm not sure about this photo.... I look rough! However I rather like the goatie!
Oh dear I am getting a lot of negative e-mails... The general feeling is "Love the painting, Hate the goatie"
