When I was a young boy of 13,  I would tear up my mums unwanted sheets to make canvas and paint Terry Frosts. Semi Circles of colour on white etc. He was my first big influence and with young eyes I was in love with his use of pure bold colour. The way colour responded to the colour next to it was intoxicating and set me on a path to become an artist.

Recently I have been putting some of my work straight into auction .

And here is the last piece. Inspired by Mr and Mrs Irving who recently commissioned me to do a Pool Painting and guess who I am next to .................... the late great  Sir Terry Frost.

Thanks Terry

It is such a joy to be able to work on these pools.. I started this over the weekend and am nearly finished today. Been cracking on. Want to do a cricket painting for the Australian Cricket Board competition next.  I do fancy a trip to Bondi Beach before I die!
