Things Can Only Get Better

I was very busy in the run up to Christmas, completing five new bespoke Shelf-Portrait oil painting commissions.

Mission Accomplished!! So now that they have been delivered and given to their new owners, I can share them with you….

This one is called ‘Things Can Only Get Better’….

Tired Pelicans at the Yorkshire Gallery.. Roo Waterhouse Art

If you’re at the Piece Hall in Halifax, pop in to the Yorkshire Gallery and you’ll find some Tired Pelicans taking refuge there….

Along with a selection of my Shelf-Portrait Limited Edition Giclee prints….

Wonderful words!

”Public accomplishments and hidden secrets. Old Friends and loves lost. Simple jokes and profound truths. This bookshelf encapsulates half a century of the inside of my head. More intimate and more telling than any facial portrait could ever be.

As tromp d’oeil, only the larger than life scale gives the game away. Roo’s talent is to both abstract and reproduce the worn history of these much loved books. Working with Roo was a delight, her care and artistic judgement shining through at every step.”

Down to London last week to deliver my latest bespoke Shelf-Portrait,

‘Properties of Matter’

My largest book painting to date at 50×100″ it was an absolute joy to paint 🙂

Very pleased with the result, as is the new owner!
