April showers.

   I’ve been painting a lot of landscapes just lately which is very unlike me. I’m seeing a very strong shift in style that seems to of come upon me, and I’m embracing it with open arms and water laden brushes.  It’s quite something for an artist when ones style changes on its own, without searching it out, and I…

First still life with Olympus Pen F.

   I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to pick up my new camera the Olympus pen F! Kid in a sweet shop springs to mind. I opted for the 17mm 1.8 lens over the 40mm although I will add a couple of pros to that list once I’ve got the hang of the beast! Now I…

Walking in the fields.
