Kettle small painting

 The kettle - my friend Roger says these days condos and cabins are offering smaller walls on which to hang paintings, so a 'smallie' would be ideal for a boat or a small apartment, This original painting comes with a tiny wooden easel. Canadian dollars 150 plus a bubble envelope for shipping and postage to wherever you live.

Buy me.

Our Neighbourhood

 This is the center of our neighborhood.

It’s where we get our grocery (and just around the corner) our wine.

Our local shopping center serves not only the Stadacona Center with over 100 residents (where I live), but a dozen such condos in the immediate area, adding another hundred people or so each building, That’s a lot of people looking for sustenance...

After 15 years of painting outside (in Victoria en plein air every week) I saw that the scene cnr Fort & Oak Bay avenue would make a good impressionistic sketch in oil.

Comment: That is a lovely painting.

Comment: Hey dad that is absolutely amazing good job I really like that. 

Comment: Excellent Ron.

Young African Elephant

Many people like their wildlife realistic.
other art-minded people like the impressionist style. It's a matter of good taste.
Contact me for this one, It should be appreciated by wildlife collectors.

"Pompano Fish" oil on board 8x10

We saw Pompano at the deepfreeze of our local store - highly recommended for eating.
Great colours for an artist. Great for painting loosely.

"Sossies" (sausages) oil on board 8x10

I painted these sausages with a single battered brush.
Oil on reclaimed hardboard, coated with gesso.



"Sossies" (with a pork chop)

(South African slang for sausages)

I have always wanted to paint like this. But afraid 'cos I know many won't like the style. Loose.

Still, as the song says, I gotta be me...this is tonight's braai (barbecue).

"Dallas Road Cliff, Rail Fence" oil on stretched canvas 16" x 20"

Oil sketch  above, actual photo below.

 This scene is most visited by local Victorians in BC. A lot of dog owners let their pets run hassle-free, and artists love it for the many scenes to paint in the area.

My family says my painting isn't finished but I know it is because when artists have realized their intentions - it's DONE!

"Rocks & bush, Cattle Point" gouache postcard size


"Rocks & bush, Cattle Point"
My current fav place to paint. I'm borrowing styles from Carol Marine and the redoubtable ken Faulks
while trying to sustain my own way of working. (Better artists always help me by just being there...)
