I’ve painted outdoors and I’ve painted indoors… on location and in studios all over the world. People often ask me: Which do I prefer? Is one more authentic? Is the other easier? Over the years I’m thinking it is all up to the individual, what gets you stoked as a painter, what inspires your process.

London, calling once again!
For the second summer in a row I’ve had the pleasure and honour of painting “live” at the Graham Fine Art gallery in London’s Crouch End.
Live demonstrations are a wonderful opportunity to get to know the gallery’s clients and for them to see my process.
It’s also a nice change for me to leave the seclusion of my Tuscany studio and soak up the vibrance and energy of London and the Crouch End neighbourhood. My live-painting sessions at Graham Fine Art bookend my pop-up studio time in Oxford this summer.
This year my painting process has been delightfully documented with a series of short videos, created and produced by talented gallery assistant Carolina Maggio and Team GFA.
GFA’s own Graham Powell and Carolina are attentive to all details of running and managing a gallery… and of course keeping things exceedingly fun & lively.
In the “Mallorca” video, I am actually creating a painting from the very beginning of my process. This is the second half of the “Mallorca” diptych which took approximately three weeks to complete…
In the gallery, inspiration abounds… as a result I’ve created numerous smaller works as well.
The end of this year’s summer painting sojourn was celebrated with an evening soiree with some good friends in attendance.
We so enjoyed our summer as Crouch End locals…. Loving every minute and looking forward to returning again next year. Many many thanks to Graham and Carolina and all at Graham Fine Art for a fabulous summer!
Founded in 1621, the University of Oxford Botanic Garden is the oldest botanic gardens in Great Britain and one of the oldest scientific gardens in the world. It has one of the most diverse yet compact collections of plants in the world and contains over 8,000 different species, including… poppies!
First stop was to deliver my paintings to be stretched at Bird and Davis, one of the UK’s oldest and leading art stretcher manufactures.
On this visit I’ve brought some fresh produce paintings, springtime florals and summer sunflowers.
I have also brought the latest in my series of Water Paintings, this large piece is entitled “Mallorca Blues I”.
“Tara’s Morning Tide” is a wedding present from a thoughtful fiance’ to a very lucky bride. Congratulations to Tara and Ricardo!
If you are interested in any of these paintings please don’t hesitate to contact Graham at Graham Fine Art.
It doesn’t get much better than this…
A complete indulgence of the senses.
Step right in and take a deep breath…
and most of all, inspires creativity…
