Not only am I celebrating the arrival of a new series of high quality cards, but some very special news is imminent about my painting “Still Life with Vincent”. What better way to celebrate than by posting this image of multiple cards featuring the painting?
My most recent commission. Acrylic on stretched canvas , 26” x 36” , varnished.
An homage to Jim Murphy and his favourite song writers.
I composed the painting with motifs, portraits and words referring to various aspects of Jim’s career as a songwriter and his recent graduation. Each part of the painting has a special significance for Jim. I have completed many commissions for Jim and his family over the years. In fact his home is almost like a gallery devoted to my stylised work.
