Scarlet Masts

February 5, 2017
New picture - 'Scarlet Masts'

Today fishing continues to flourish in Old Town, Hastings, where tall Net Shops are a unique feature. All fifty are black and wooden and originally built to store fishing gear over the winter. Usable space was at a premium, so Net Shops had to expand upwards when extra space was needed.

When sketching on the shingle beach in Old Town, I was also attracted by the glorious shades of red I saw reflected around me and decided to make these a feature.

The original measures 36" x 24" and costs £225. Framed prints are available from £37.50.

The Approaching Storm

All is colourful and bright in this little seaside town. But a storm is coming and only the fish, in their underwater world, are safe from it. Original £175, prints from £22.50. See it here

On 16th July ( a special day in my family) my largest painting yet, 'Standing Proud' was displayed at the Arlington Arts show. Just two weeks later it has been sold to someone local who 'fell in love with it' when she saw it on Facebook. It was lovely to meet her yesterday and to see how her face lit up with pleasure when she actually saw the real painting. Thank you, Claire!

I have quite a few ideas for more paintings of this size. Watch this space but please be patient as they won't appear overnight!

Here is 'Standing Proud' in its new home in Claire's lounge!
