Latest house painting commission and other paintings

 Latest commission at the top of lovely Muswell Hill family. The other pictures are lockdown-inspired - scenes of home and scenes in Highbury where I live. The Canary Wharf picture is painted from near where one of my sons has moved (Rotherhithe)

Thursday 26 November 2020

I did these paintings over the last couple of months as my visual response to the extraordinary 2020 - seeking peace and finding solace in our lockdowns, and observing empty London.

The first painting shows my sister-in-law's dining area, the second a cottage we came upon in a woodland near Boscastle, and the third a view of modern London looming over older, empty, streets. The church in the foreground is St Lawrence Jewry near Guildhall.

These images are available as A4 giclee prints:

40 Beak Street, Soho, then and now...

At the top is straight on view of the old police station at 40 Beak Street, which I was commissioned to paint by Enstar Capital in 2015. And below is how it looks now - old building torn down and spanking new one up in its place - and bought by Damien Hirst as his new headquarters.
