This painting is oil on canvas, and is 1 meter by 1 meter in size, you would think after painting all this fruit I would be really healthy and eat most of it after completing the artwork,? but no, It usually sits on the shelf and after several weeks of being ignored, I remember to put it in the compost!!

I love this one, it is like a map of the pears, it's about a meter square imagine this on a white wall, in a modern home, I wish I could afford to have it on my wall!! it's acrylic on canvas. I'm torn between oil and acrylic, oil is more manageable and allows you to blur edges, so I will probably stick to oil.
I'm having a small exhibition in a lovely cafe called 'Togs' in a nearby town called Castlemaine,
during October, so I have been busy making some new pictures, all will be still life, and mostly will be in a newer and fresher and more vibrant style. hope you like them.

This is a painting done a couple of months ago, it's about 120 x 110 cm. it has a good varnish on it,
and it has a very traditional look and feel. anyone interested in it the price is $1.750. 00( Aus.) I have just returned from a few weeks away and visited lots of galleries in both Spain and the U.K. my favorite being the National gallery in London.
One of the things I noticed in regional galleries in the U.K. the works seem to be much smaller, maybe the smaller houses and limited space has something to do with that?

I did this painting while in Adelaide a few weeks ago, it's in acrylic, ( most unusual for me.!)
it was for my daughter Emily, its big, and fun, it has helped me go in a new direction, away from the dark colours, I painted it under the car port in the open, with grandkids whizzing past on skateboards, saying Cool ,man, thats awesome etc!! I did another 3 or 4 at the same time. let me know what you think.?
Hi bloggers! I must add some new pictures to my blog, I have been painting and drawing a lot recently, this one is 1 meter by 1 meter, oil on canvas and has been sold twice, !! this one goes to Adelaide to a lovely home by the North Adelaide golf course, and I have done a twin version for a couple up here in Daylesford. the background is actually whiter than it looks on this photo.

A new nest painting done only a couple of weeks ago, it's on a big canvas, almost a meter and a half in width, really punchy, I'm not keeping track of my nest series paintings, some get sold before I photograph them,
keep visiting my blog in 2013, I wish you a fantastic new year. thanks for viewing my work.
This is another small format painting ( 310 x 150 mm. ) in oil on canvas, done for a new exhibition coming up in the new year in Sydney, I will post the details later. thank you for viewing my art, please email me if you are interested in purchasing anything, or just to chat. cheers Roger.
A new drawing done recently at the Ballarat life drawing class, I was pleased with sales of my drawings at the Daylesford art show, I displayed them in plastic sleeves, with no framing,
I just put them in a pile on a trestle table and people rifled through them,
so I was able to keep the prices down, to around the $100.00 mark, considering they are large pieces,
the art collectors got a bargain!!

My camera hasn't done justice to this painting,! I just took the photo, but I must admit the sky is dark grey, the temperature is only 7 degrees, it's freezing and about to rain, and it's 2.00 in the afternoon,!! but that's what I have got to get used to here in Western Victoria.! I love the brooding mystery of this one.
