This month the focus will be on seascapes. If you saw my earlier message, you will know that “focus” means special offers. Summer is over, but its spirit has been hovering with many warm days and clear skies in the autumn. The welcome mat at the beach can get a bit soggy and wind-blown from now on, so it seems a good time to have a clearance sale. Hence the May focus on seascapes.

I predict that there will be more landscapes in the coming months. So the website will have a bit of a re-vamp as well in June or July. Something for me to slave over during the winter.

In the meantime, here is today’s first highlight:

It was a commission for a wedding present – “And Maisie makes three”

A large painting, this one gave me a chance to play with colour. And play I did! The colourful cliffs and paddocks made a lively counterpoint to the turquoise and greens of the sea.

Of course, that one is not for sale, but this one is:

Sunshine on dunes; 25x30cm; oil on linen panel, framed; discounted price $415 (or $394 for subscribers) until May 21st.

Were you surprised by last week’s weather? I was. Sunshine and “free” time haven’t happened together for a long time, so I grabbed the opportunity when it arose! Thursday was perfect for painting the cafes on Jetty Road Brighton. On Friday morning, although I had packed the car ready for painting in the Adelaide Hills, it was getting too late to make the journey worthwhile. The Esplanade was an attractive and easy option. And more of the May focus: seascapes!

Wintry day in summer; acrylic on linen panel; 25x30cm; $415 (or $395 for subscribers) until 21st May

I am saving my new small paintings for a book. More news about that later! Enjoy the last of autumn.

Snap up a bargain! If you buy one for your Mum I will add a little something for you. Two gifts in one. But be quick. Sale ends on 21st May.
