Moments in Time

I have great pleasure in creating small ‘moments’ on canvas board.  I have a growing collection of these for sale and will continue to work on more in the coming months.  They are painted from photographs of normal people going about their everyday business in real situations.  Nothing in the paintings is imaginary; these are all real people who have been captured in oils.  The paintings measure 20cm square (28cm square framed) and look great anywhere, either on their own or as a pair or more.

All of the scenes come from photographs either myself or my daughter have taken, however, if you have a scene which you would like turned into a small painting, please send it to me and I’ll create and frame it for you.  There is no extra cost for a commissioned painting.  Look at my Instagram pages for additional examples of my artworks.

In addition to the small painting, I have some larger ones which are also created using photographs.  Some of these are shown below.  Once again, I can create anything the customer wants from a photograph.  If you have a particular area to fill, I can create a painting to sit within it.

Italian Man, San Gimignano, Italy

This particular painting is larger than the others and measures approximately 36cm x 91cm.  It is painted in oils on canvas and is unframed.

Italian man on steps

This man was also photographed in San Gimignano.  He was sitting on some steps, obviously a local and just taking in the scene.  Also painted in oils on canvas, this on is painted entirely using palette knife giving it a real texture. Size is approximately 36cm x 91cm. (Cost £400)
