Sunset on Irvine Rd, Kilmarnock


The sky was pretty the other night when I walked home from the cotton mill, so I made this little painting of it.

I love painting, it’s just a search for beauty in the world and then finding a way to translate it onto canvas,

…..only some days it can be really hard to find.

Martial Art

I was on the way to my Wellington Gallery Art Class to start this painting…

I was about to cross the road.
It was wet, windy, miserable, and there was a man in front of me. He was wearing a raincoat, hood up, and zipped up to the nose, completely closed off from the world and the weather.
He had already crossed the road, and there was a sizeable distance between us…….except, he paused to remove some litter from the pavement, it took enough time that I had now caught up to him. He was bent down, and unaware that I was right behind him.
‘Sorry, excuse me’ I said, as I shuffled past him.

He shat himself, and with the strangest natural reaction I have ever seen, attempted to karate chop me.

Heroes and Villains

I love working on superheroes/villains. They have to be my favourite subject, they never let me down. Not once have I had to put vodka in my cheerios on a morning when I’m working on these fellas.
