Fish market

Someone took my throat and replaced it with a rusty wheeze-box...I whistle when I breathe. Painting and writing have been dragging at a 5 mile crawl and I am thoroughly sorry for myself, so no sympathy please, I've got enough to do me for now, and then some. I did manage to get the poster finished before I succumbed to the lurgy...



Still stretched on the board at A2 size



A healthy diet




Your local friendly fishmonger




Too many legs on the octopus...


Normal service might be resumed soon.

I love the hanging wooden fish sign and the octopus the best! your palette is so pleasing.... I always feel drawn in to your pieces through the colors first, and then through all the delightful details.

Another wonderful poster. I love the little cat looking up.

I can't believe you can do this when you're sick. Also love the cat leading the mouse on a string.

Your site is too wonderful....my work is so serious that I get quite envious of people who do such lovely and playful work.
