Good morning folks I hope that this latest blog post finds you all well and enjoying this autumnal sunshine in between the thunder & lightning and rain & hail showers lol.  All I can say is make the most of our yellow friend as apparently snow is on its way.

With only five weeks until Christmas I should be at my easel 24/7 but no ‘Mr Cold Virus’ paid a visit so this past week has been a frustrating few days to say the least.  Thankfully I’m at the tail end of a throat that felt like I’d tried to swallow a cheese grater and a head that felt as though it were made out of cotton wool lol. So it’s onwards and upwards yet again …

Thank you for the wonderful feedback I’m getting from my weekly Blogs, your emails and texts are truly appreciated xXx

Okay here goes with the latest news from this end:

On my easel at the moment:

Slowly but surely my latest commission is taking shape, with the 3000 acres of grass now in I can finally crack on with the subject, working it to completion in turn followed with the delivery of it to my client in Bethgelert, North Wales.  So all being well in next week’s blog I’ll be including an image of the completed painting.

Knowsley Safari Park Survey – your help required 😉

If you’ve been receiving and reading my blog updates you’ll be aware that I’m in the early stages of market research for the setting up of art based events here in Cheshire at Knowsley Safari Park.  So that is where you, my wonderful subscribers, can play a part if you wish by completing the following online survey.  This simple ‘service testing’ survey should take just a few minutes to complete.  Thank you to those of you who have already taken the time to complete the survey, your input is truly appreciated.

Celebratory Commission:

Chris Packham is my most recent client and his commissioned painting will be next on my easel. So looking forward

Christmas come early? 😉

Well I really did feel as though Christmas came early last week when I received a surprise gift in the post from my friends over in Geneva at the Caran d’Ache headquarters:

I haven’t sampled their Luminance range before, having only sampled and demonstrated their pastel range for them, hence when I take my Christmas break I’ll no doubt be having fun with these 🙂

Wildlife 2017 Workshops are selling fast:

With this year’s wildlife art workshops just a distant memory now (the last one having successfully run last Saturday) can I bring to your attention that next year’s workshop places are selling quickly.  So if you want to treat yourself or a loved one to a place on one of next year’s courses then please book sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment, as it really is first come first served and places are limited with no exception.  For more information and to book your place please see the ‘Workshops’ page of my website:

Well I’ll leave it at that for now as I really do need to get back to my easel, and you’ll be wanting a brew no doubt ;-).
