“Tower Beat” (Acrylic on Board)
This is one of my favourite fishing beats along the river Esk . A lone salmon fisherman tries his luck in the late Autumn sun. Approx. Board Size: Height 16″ (40.5cm) Width: 12″ (30.5cm)
“A Quiet Corner” (Acrylic on Board)
High Summer on the River Esk. The river deepens on this corner and seems to slow for a moment before resuming it’s tumble along the valley.

“Solway Sunset” (Acrylic on Box Canvas)
This was inspired by countless walks along the river Eden at Rockcliffe (Cumbria), out onto the marsh of the Solway Firth. A wonderful space away from it all.

Wizardy Eek! & Wizardy Pfft!” (Acrylic on Canvas)
These were painted for a bit of light relief with a view to having them printed for sale. Unfortunately I didn’t realise that getting good quality printing, at a reasonable price could be so problematic…learning all the time!
Approx. Size: Height 7″ (18cm) Width: 5″ (13cm)
“A Chance Meeting” (Little Owls Acrylic on Canvas)
This painting was painted for my wonderful wife as a presentation piece for her private collection. It was the first painting i had produced in a number of years after a long and messy divorce, so long in fact, it was the first painting she actually saw me do! (We’d been together 7 years by this point)!! I tried to incorporate as much as I could about my love for the countryside and natural history, including a number of more obscure personal references to my own life.
Approx. Canvas Size: Height: 31″ (79cm) Width: 25″ (63cm)
“Armathwaite Amble” (Acrylic on Box Canvas)
This was painted from a photo I took whilst out on a countryside walk along the River Eden at Armathwaite with an old friend. It was a glorious spring afternoon.
Approx. Canvas Size: Height: 12″ (30.5cm) Width” 9″ (23cm) Depth: 1.5″ (4cm)
