Many years ago, inspired by my good friend, the painter and stained glass artist, Phil Dutton, I bought a few oil paints and brushes. I found a bit of old hardboard in the garage and set about trying to paint a bleak Welsh landscape from a photo I’d taken. I was surprisingly happy with the result and painted another picture. This time I just played with a few shapes and ended up with a series of alien looking beings in crash helmets. Again, I was quite happy with the result, more for the fact that I’d just created something that had never been seen before, rather than for its artistic merit!
Over the years I’ve dabbled at painting, mainly abstract work, and although the results aren’t always that pleasing I really enjoy doing it and I think that’s what really counts.
The paintings here are the result of many hours of dabbling over very many years.
