I’m getting on nicely with the commission I am doing for Stuart Haywood, for what he refers to as his “snuff it” painting… He’s both joking and serious about the reason for the painting he wants me to do. He’s very aware of his own mortality now he is in his 80’s and wants this […]

Angelic touches

I was able to meet up with the couple who commissioned the “Angel with red hair and pagan symbols” painting at the weekend. I’ve not seen them for about three years we decided as we happily chatted over a cup of tea and caught up with each others news. Firstly being of course the painting that […]
