The first with a title that isn't straight off Catchphrase (Just say what you see).

"This is where you show me just where I belong"*

about 3ft x 8ins. Oil on canvas.

this is wonderful. I would hang it in my house . It reminds me of one of my favorite fairytales, Jack in the Beanstalk. :clap:

Like the way you mixed the realism with the mistery and romantic aspect (sometimes) of loneliness :)

I planted one of these just the other day. I'm totally excited about it too.
I love the format in this painting. The reach is tremendous; it's almost a physical sensation.

wow. works on every level for me.
particularly like the sequential development of the flowers from top to bottom.
and the paint-ing
as always
is stellar.

Thanks for looking.

That is how foxgloves grow (ummmmm.........they don't grow everywhere in the world and not everyone is familiar with other countries native fauna and flora Maryem). Anyway, where I am they grow like weeds, this particular flower was sticking out of the top of a wall early last summer and the picture has been waiting all year for me to develop it. The delay is quite apt really, as a foxglove is a biennial that doesn't flower in its first year, so you'll have to be patient aurora.

Glad you liked the title Bisco, not my words, but for me they're far more beautiful than the painting.

1chameleon - I'll try and update my website soon, you know how it is, tempus edax rerum. I reckon the whole site is due an overhaul. I destroyed a lot of work last year, so it needs it.

Ummm I hope "destroyed" means that you "put them in a dark place" and doesnt mean "Burn" or something else as permanent !! :eek: :crying:

....you didnt destroy anything you put up on your site did you ?! :(

I'm afraid destroyed means exactly what it says, torn off the stretchers, screwed up and thrown out with the trash. I was having one of my moments; what can I say? There was some stuff that hadn't made it to my website, but others that had, i.e. the yellow flower, the red distorted rose, the big version of the dawn landscape and a couple of skies. I'm not sure about the black painting, I don't recall trashing it, but it's all a bit of a blur and I can't find it now. At about 6 and a half feet wide you'd think that it'd be pretty easy to locate too, but it's currently AWOL. Ah well, c'est la vie and all that.

I am saddened to read that :(....I can't bear to to destroy anything of mine...no matter how bad it is...I see it as a record of my time and effort and of me being here on this earth...I loved your skies, they are my favourite ones. :crying:

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you 1chameleon, but I've been so busy it's stupid. Don't be saddened by my trashing stuff, I do it all the time. For me it's an essential part of the process, I think it's useful to go through everything that's still hanging around every six months or so and get rid of things that aren't so good. Okay, in this particular instance I went a bit mad and got rid of a couple of bits of work that maybe I shouldn't, but I was in the process of moving house, from a place with a big studio space to one without, so it was essential just in terms of storage that some stuff should go, and once I started trashing things it got a bit contagious. I was probably slightly brutal, but I didn't get rid of anything that I was really fond of; which makes me more certain that I haven't trashed my black painting. I just can't locate the damned thing.

My record of my being on this earth is six and a half and likes to fall asleep on the floor while watching Saturday morning TV...
