New home for old friends

Delighted to say that these two found a new home over the weekend. They are staying together, so will not be too lonely!

Sold paintings

This was an interesting exercise. Over the years I have been fortunate to sell a number of paintings. It has not always been clear why people choose one painting over another. This collage of 40 paintings is an attempt to try understand what motivates people to pull out their wallet/purse.

Not all sold paintings are included, partly because there wasn't room and partly because I have not always photographed the painting before parting with it.

Now the difficult bit. Why did these sell, when others that I consider better paintings did not? Answers on a post card please!

Kos Town

This one is finally finished after hanging around for ages. It measures approx 11" by 15" and was painted with Conte pastel on Sennelier pastel card.

The reference was a photograph taken on holiday in July this year.

The Eye of the Tiger

This one was inspired by the great rock anthem by Survivor.

It measures approx 9" by 9" and was painted with St Petersburg White Nights watercolour paint ( with a little white gouache) on Bockingford paper.
