About our paintings
Paintings are precious in many ways and few gifts increase in value to the recipient in the way a quality paintings will.
Here you can find excellent unusual gifts for special occasions, you can commemorate achievements, illustrate stories in a uniquely impressive way.
Our imagination yours and mine, is the only limit.
One only has to see how fine paintings transform homes, bring models to life in a museum, affect offices or public exhibitions to appreciate the difference.
You are viewing and we hope ordering from one of the very few artists invited to exhibit at the European Parliament (May 2011), a remarkable endorsement.
Pictures of enduring worth for special occasions, many have become family treasures and some, historical documents.

The unique and distinctive paintings of the versatile Gordon Frickers mark (almost) a life time of passionate involvement and study by an artist of distinction, enjoy.
Gordon Frickers is the first and only marine painter invited to exhibit at the European Parliament, by the chairman of the Transport and Tourism Committee, not a bad endorsement.
A painter first and foremost, the versatile Frickers is noted as reliable, professional, a good team player, experienced and diverse producing work with accuracy, depth, luminosity and immediacy; among other qualities.
Many of the compositions are loaded with emotions, vitality, mysteries.
Brian Simpson MEP wrote “Frickers paintings are marks of our achievement as a people.
