Another Acrylic Landscape Painting

I've just completed this acrylic on canvas, though not sure that it should be considered a landscape or a wildlife painting since the deer caught in the shafts of sunlight filtering through the trees is the focal point.

Have shipped a couple of prints to the USA this week, I've noticed that deliveries there seem to be taking a little longer these days, perhasp the planes are flying slower to save fuel given the rising costs that we are all suffering from at the moment.

I have also just completed an order for notecards of a selection of my paintings which are sold to support the League of Friends at my local hospital. I'm have a trip planned to the Great Western Society at Didcot for next week, to gather some information for a forthcoming painting, so watch this space.

This weeks activities

I have ventured into unknown territory this week and painted my first ever abstract, the wife says she likes it, but then maybe I should expect that. It is an acrylic on canvas and will probably be entered into the summer exhibition unless anyone offers me obscene amounts of money before then.


I have just shipped another Limited Edition print sold from my Ebid store. There are more and more sellers signing up there each day following their disillusionment with eBay's latest changes.

I've also given my car its spring clean and it's now looking nice and shiny, and today I am breaking with tradition and actually watching a soccer match. Portsmouth are in the FA Cup Final, the first time since they won it way back in 1939 before I was born. Since they are the local team I have to support them.

Late Summer Sun sold at exhibition !

This is a landscape painting was sold at the recent exhibition, and have subsequently sold another Limited Edition print of it as well. You can buy this print along with more of my work from my online store at Tazbar


Well now that the April showers are hopefully out of the way, the weather may be good enough to venture outside on some painting expeditions. I visited the Guild of Railway Artists exhibition last week, and that has rekindled my love of steam trains, so a visit with my son to the Great Western Railway Centre at Didcot is scheduled for next month, you should expect to see a railway painting before long.
