Here are a couple of paintings I’ve been working on for my November exhibit. The top one is my first version of the Vicker’s memorial in Kane cemetary.
One of the most difficult things in painting is knowing when to stop, and maybe that time passed long ago. But I have another version which I began when I’d given this one up for lost.
The second one I just began. The colors outside the studio window are more vibrant than I could ever hope to capture in paint. It’s still a work in progress, though the show goes up in 3 days.

This landscape is astonishingly beautiful. Such a refreshing choice of colors for an autumn scene.
Thank you Lily. It still needs some work though.
Best wishes for the show.
You capture the essence of autumn through the palette .. Or the other way round.
Thanks for the good wishes, Beeseeker.
tis a lovely scene, I do really enjoy the Human element in the largder of the two trees and I enjoy the the feeling of motion that youve captured with such ease of stroke in the smaller of the two trees. very nice Sir. And yes best of everything this November. and everyday.
Thanks Benjamin. I appreciate the feedback from such a fine artist as yourself. But I have changed the painting already, easing some of the too-jarring passages and generally resolving it.
The painting at the top works for me. NIce one.
Wish I could paint like that – but I’m into pencil, pen and charcoal sketches.
I’m glad you like it. I’ve certainly worked on it a long time. Do you post some of your drawings?
beautiful paintings and style – reminds me of the impressionists
Thank you- I do like the Impressionists.
