REPRODUCTIONS

I have been known to paint a few reproductions

Here is one. Reproduction of one of Chardin's work. I am very fond of this artist.

A reproduction in Oil


Reference Wikipedia

Chardin was born in Paris, the son of a cabinetmaker, and rarely left the city. He lived on the Left Bank near Saint-Sulpice until 1757, when Louis XV granted him a studio and living quarters in the Louvre.[
Chardin entered into a marriage contract with Marguerite Saintard in 1723, whom he did not marry until 1731. He served apprenticeships with the history painters Pierre-Jacques Cazes and Noël-Nicolas Coypel, and in 1724 became a master in the Académie de Saint-Luc.

Unplanned painting!

I always claimed I would never paint cars or trains or planes leaving it to the boys!

I know, some of you will find the comment sexist and why not?
I only paint what inspires me. A car would not.

However, I felt challenged to paint this beautiful little car for a very special couple.

So here it is done.
To all car enthusiasts, take note: it will be the one and only car painting.
​I will not paint another, even if I have enjoyed the challenge.

WHAT A WEEK

Yes, WHAT A WEEK!

This time it is not about me but about a delightful little book I have received by post.

I never publicised a book unless, I have read it and looked at the content carefully!

I feel I must give artist Debs Green-Jones the thumb up for her very first published children book.

It has been received by children of my family with curiosity and delight. They were attracted by the beautiful colourful designs. The story was easy to absorb with their little minds wanting to know what happens on the following pages.

Dottie, the main personage of the story meets animals, the rest is for you to find out.😏

Just what is needed with children !

Two bonuses: 

- Children are introduced to the sequence of the days of the week
- It is for sale at an incredibly affordable price, making it a Must Have for Christmas stockings.

To be found on Amazon @ £5.99
