Self-portraits, thirty-four years apart.

Rebuilding the website lately, I've been thinking about including an image or two from the distant past. I was rooting around at my parents' house over the weekend looking for old work. Of course, I didn't find the things I was looking for. I did however find this self-portrait, drawn when I was four. It rather amused me. I think it looks quite like me, too. Here it is alongside a self-portrait done thirty-four years later!

Flurry of Gulls

Waves driven by the wind, and the flapping of wings that harness its power.

Trees and Undergrowth in Watercolour

Studies of the foliage in the woods near to my home. Undergrowth and trees animated by the wind.

My mother (also a painter) is holding a private exhibition at her home at the end of the month. It features work by her and by three artist friends of hers. There's some seriously good stuff, so I thought I'd post a few images and links to their websites.
