Cup Cake Ballet

"Cup Cake Ballet" 2009 46x56cm Oil on Linen

I have just finished this painting as a commission for a very patient client! I cannot believe how quickly this year has flown by. I'm sure a happy cup cake painting will set us in the right mood for holidays!

I wish all my followers the happiest of holidays and the very best in 2010.

Keep an eye out for my new small paintings coming up soon!

"Quiet", 2009
Oil on linen on board, 14.6 x 14.6 cm (6 x 6 inches)

Hello there, its been a long time between posting paintings...I've been quite unwell these past few months but thankfully, I seem to be finding my feet again. The urge to paint never leaves me, and now that I've finished this little work, I feel somehow complete again and able to get back into painting as before.

I remain interested in Film Noir and the genre's dramatic lighting that focuses on people together with an interaction with their surroundings. I have always enjoyed giving life to the inanimate object, in this case the corridors within a building via dramatic lighting.

I hope you enjoy my latest work and thank you for visiting my blog.

Happy New Year & Welcome to 2009

"Study for girl at the door", 2009-2010
Oil on linen on board, 12.5 x 18 cm (5 x 7 inches)

A symbolic painting for my first small artwork for 2009. It is a study for my new work and pictures to be in my upcoming show in Canberra this year.

To set the scene : A beautiful young woman is seen standing at a door, which is held slightly ajar. The way is clear, she is holding some items in a box from previous years and is about to step through the doorway into a new beginning.

As always my work reflects what I'm going through and feeling and very much see 2009 as a new beginning for me.
