“The composition and the quality of your painting is quite simply stunning and has deeply impressed everyone who has seen it.
The detail, lighting and colours deserve particular attention; the inclusion of another CMS vessel in the background is a delightful touch as is the choice of venue”
.

Re Ferries/ Clansman at Barra:

The print has just arrived …
I am speechless … just as well I am typing!

I know it would be nice, but I am totally blown away, it is fantastic.

It is already on show sitting on my colleague’s desk, fortunately for her she is not at work today, it is causing quite a stir in the office, as you can imagine.

Yours, in awe, Tess (address supplied)

The mystery of paintings

Hazlerigg (a Moody 31), Commissioned as a Christmas SurpriseFew things make a home or offices look more stylish than very good paintings.
The rooms are given uplift.

People notice the aura without their even looking at the paintings.

Paintings convey authority and integrity to the rooms in a way which no other furnishings can, challenging the imagination of all who see them.

Fine paintings arouse conversations and give pleasure and value every time you are near them.
