another little painting that was produced for an exhibition here in Adelaide, one of a series, all the same size and are displayed standing up on a table, they are on smalll canvases that are about 2 inches thick, I paint the edge black, they look really nice like objects rather than paintings on a wall.

While painting this little still life, the temperature outside the studio was around 39 deg celcius, over a 100 degrees in the old language, my ancient air conditioner was struggling! I suppose we will all have to expect more and more extreme weather in the future with global warming, becoming a very real part of our lives.but the pears look cool!
This nest painting was done the other day, it's smaller than I normally do, about 500 x 500 cms, it works well, I believe because it was painted quickly in a more spontaneous way, I held myself back from labouring over it, with too much fine detail, (a habit left over from my years as an illustrator!)
