Freedom in Dreams

We’re into the 6th week of corona virus lock-down and I’ve been working away in isolation in my studio . This is a painting that’s been on the easel for around 2 weeks and is now finished I think . Hopefully the title is appropriate .

Stripes in isolation

Hannah with her tattoo

The first of a , hopefully , ongoing series of portraits of people and their tattoos . Hannah has the poem ‘The Call’ by Thomas Osbert Mordaunt tattooed onto her leg so I projected it onto her and incorporated it into the painting .

Dennistoun Stairs

This is one of four paintings I’ve recently finished of the same close in Dennistoun in Glasgow’s East End . It’s part of a commission . When I was initially approached to do it I was a little unsure as I know the area fairly well and , well , to be diplomatic , I wasn’t convinced there’d be a palace awaiting me . It isn’t a palace , but it is a lovely close with a very unusual layout and shape which inspired me to produce several paintings and I daresay there’ll be a few more in the future . I’ve called it ‘Red Stairs in Dennistoun ‘

Horselethill

This is a watercolour I’ve just finished . While going through my usual desperate attempts to come up with a decent title for it I was delighted to discover that it’s of a street called ‘Horselethill Road ‘ I’ve lived in Glasgow for over 31 years , about 10 of those in the West-End not too far from the subject matter of this painting but I don’t think I’ve been aware of the name before . I’m sure there are lots of other quirky street names around but it’s always a delight to find a new one to me . Apologies to anyone who lives on Horselethill Road for my ignorance . I believe the main building depicted here belongs to Glasgow University . Anyhow , it’s called ‘Autumn colours on Horselethill Road ‘
