It’s not every day I’m commissioned to paint 17 Arabian horses on 34 plates but ‘the proof is in the pudding’ so to speak as here are some of the plate I have painted for my client.
They are all oil paintings no bigger that a standard dinner plate, and No! they are not for eating on, the will probably be hung on a wall as a display.
I love this job as it presented quite a challenge and I like a challenge. Just to getting the paint to stay on the plate was, shell we say interesting, but once I got the hang of it there was no stopping me and I’m very please with the result and so is my client.
The cows were as curious of me as I was of them, hence the title of this art work ‘Curious Cows’
Living in a country village here in East Sussex, I am surrounded by beautiful landscapes, farm animals and wildlife. So much of my work is inspired by my every day life and the walks I take.
These lovely cows belong to the local postman who keeps them because he likes them and he knows each one by name. While I was out walking one day I noticed they were all by the gate so I stopped to take photos and that’s how this painting came about.
