" My imagination began to take flight the more I began to tap into my own experiences"
" after learning from the work of others, which we must do, prepare your hearts for the great leap, and srike out on your own! Discover for yourself your own path built from your own passions and experiences. The road is hard at times, but it can be done. we all fear the judgement and disapproval of others, and we hope by clinging to borrowed identities- which we imagine are far greater, and more satisfying than our own- that we might circumvent the growing pains and exposure of an unaffected vision."
" the aim is to be authentic - to thine own self be true. by doing so you will inevitably be original, because not one of us is exactly the same"

This year we where very lucky to witness the return to the Solent of 4 J class yachts, Rainbow, Ranger, Lion Heart and Velsheda. This painting 10x16 was undertaken to look for ways of depicting the modern rigs and large carbon fiber sails to best effect. The painting depicts Velsheda and Rainbow off the East Lepe. The Painting is Available.
The first projects of 2013 will be 2 larger yachting paintings and a number of waves including some large format waves. Ill post images when they are finished.
