Yellow Daisy in Small Bottle

Yellow Daisy in Small Bottle
Oil on linen on MDF

I feel that I somehow identify with the simple childlike flower stuck in a bottle that is clearly too small for it.

Weathered Bottle Neck

Weathered  Bottle Neck
Oil on aluminium
109 x 80mm

I wanted to try and paint the iridescence of this sand blasted old bottle that I found washed up on Komene beach.   Like most of my work it has no message in it....

I've been experimenting with painting on aluminium panels.  It is perfectly flat and smooth and it is nice to smudge the paint on allowing the metal to glow through.

Nasturtiums in Old Bottle

Nasturtiums in Old Bottle
Oil on Plywood
200 x 200 mm

It is impossible not to feel joyous whilst painting nasturtiums.  I am painting directly onto the warm coloured plywood that has been primed with transparent GAC 200 acrylic medium.
