Tomato and banana

Acrylics on Masonite, 15 x 20 cm:


I have been rather busy with bankers and bureaucrats, as well as some non-fine art projects (watch this space!). But finally had time for a quick painting again. This sort of small still life done from the result of a raid on the kitchen remains an old favorite genre of mine.

And another nasturtium

Acrylics on Masonite, 20 x 15 cm:


I have long liked these cheerful little flowers, and the umbrella-like leaves that repel water. One can almost imagine fairies and gnomes living under there...

Rose heart

Acrylics on Masonite, 20 x 25 cm:




I rather like the semi-abstract forms that result when you zoom right into things, particularly parts of plants. I just goes to show that there is actually no very clear dividing line between abstraction and representation.
