GIFT IDEAS:  Would you like a painting with the title of your birthday or wedding anniversary to celebrate either of those occasions – or Christmas?  For 400 days beginning 28th November 2015 and ending on 31st December 2016 I painted my daily experiences overnight, every night, dating the paintings accordingly.  Colours and shapes came to mean moods and happenings; yellow was happiness; orange – friends; blue – a sense of self and contentment; white – peacefulness; brown – obligation and restriction; black – difficulty; red – pain or sorrow; grey – exhaustion or tiredness depending on the shade; green – the joy of being able to work on my poetry or some other creative writing:  email me at and, if it hasn’t already sold, I’ll send you an image to help you decide.  Price: £2,500 for the framed original 25.5 x 35.5cm oil on canvas.
