This painting of three beautiful peony blooms 🌺 is being varnished today. It’s a big and complex oil painting – and I’ve loved every minute of creating it!
In other news, I’m heading off to the theatre this evening to see The Lehman Trilogy, about the three immigrant brothers who arrived in America and created the behemoth investment firm Lehman Brothers before it all came crashing down. 
I have been strangely obsessed with financial institutions from a very young age!

'If you should find romance' depicts the timeless beauty of this vibrant deep pink peony. I wanted to capture the velvety petals and radiant hues in this beautiful bloom. It’s inspired by the idea of opening up to the possibility of discovering romance in the most unexpected places …
AND it's a lyric from a great song by The Killers. So there's that!

Almost finished with this artwork for these Mondial roses. They taken forever but only a tiny bit of finessing to go! A few brushstrokes here and there that only I am going to notice. But I still want to do them! Because, you know, pedantic. Finesse, Brush Strokes, Magnolia, Roses, Bloom, Forever, Acrylic

'Hidden Fortune' has reached its forever home in Sydney. And big thanks to my partner for hand delivering it! In other news, I have a big few days ahead painting. That's because I've been inspired by the TV series on the Chelsea Flower Show in the UK (and yes, there are so many streaming services these days that I can't remember which channel it is!). And I loved painting 'Hidden Fortune' so much that I know I'll be creating more dahlia artworks in the future!

Going for a muted palette with this one. This is 'Hidden Fortune' and, I'm not going to lie, I've always loved the idea of discovering treasure. I blame The Goonies, which is still one of my fave films to this day because of all the nostalgia it brings! This oil painting is 61x61cm.

I must say, I had a lovely day. Spent most of it painting with fluffie kitty Rocky lazing around next to me. I must admit, I decided to multitask and also took 4.5 hours of video footage of little Rocky (yes, just today) because, of course, I really need more footage of Rocky. Now waiting forever for it to transfer to my computer. Promise I won't spam you! Professional Art, 5 Hours, Video Footage, Acrylic Colors, Spam, Rocky, Promise

It's a bit hectic over here thanks to the short week with Easter coming up. In between painting, I've been editing videos, filming courses, reading books, working on commissions and loving the fact that Succession (season 4) is on!

I really enjoyed painting this tulip. Almost as much as I enjoyed Ke Huy Quan's acceptance speech at the Oscars (for Best Supporting Actor). I loved The Goonies (he a the child actor in it) and to see him come back to a craft that he really loves just makes my heart sing. Oh and the tulip is called "Brilliance Unfurled". 76x61x4cm.

This artwork is a big one! And I must admit, I want to drink from the petals of this double petal tulip! Speaking of that, it's safe to say it's wine o'clock right now and I think I might just indulge in a glass! Parrot Tulips, Wine O Clock, Close Up, Stretch Canvas

'Awaiting Her That Day' has found its forever home. I must admit, I just love all the curves in double petal tulips and I wish they were available year round! In other news, I previously mentioned that my Word of the Year is SPACE. So I've been working hard to create this in my life. So far that involves: decluttering, streamlining, systemising and delegating - pretty much in that order. Flower Prints Art, Small Canvas Art, Working Hard, Big Picture, Curves, Artists
