Ashton Lane

Ashton lane is a short street in Glasgow’s West-End , cherished for its bars and restaurants . That’s the welcoming lights of the much loved Jinty M’Ginty’s at the end . I seem to be going through a phase of painting pubs at the moment ……. just when I can’t visit any !

The Doublet in lockdown

‘Lights from the Doublet’ . The Doublet is a marvelous little pub on Park Road near Kelvinbridge in Glasgow’s West-End . I’ve depicted it on a miserable wet winter’s night when it’s neon lights would have been particularly inviting . Remember when you could actually go inside pubs and not just stare wistfully at them from outside ? Acrylic on board

In this painting I was experimenting with the translucent quality of lace when lit from behind . The ever patient Jordan was my muse .

On the Edge

Another of my striped body series , painted during corona virus lockdown . The model is the long-suffering Jordan , perched on the edge of a stripe-covered sofa , so the title is both literal and a wee bit of a metaphor . Acrylic on board 90×76cm

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 .
