Oil on canvas 22cm x 14cm 

A bee trembled spray of lilac and green; lavender released perfumed air under a gentle shudder. I’ve never seen so many bees on one plant. Hovering like black and yellow flowers, they set to work on the tips of this well farmed plant, from sun up to sun down. It’s easy to overlook what's under our nose.
Up close there were 3 types of bees throbbing away, engrossed in activity. That was Sunday in a sun drenched garden.  Bank Holiday Monday was drenched in rain, and the lavender stood silent.  
Looking closer though, it’s still full.  It has a bee sheltering under every flower; no doubt praying for the sun, thinking… time is honey.

Liverpool painting No.1. Parr Street.

The Liverpool paintings are now available as cards at the Anglican Cathedral as well as Speke Hall. I expect to be adding a few more site specific paintings as I'll now do some work in and around the building, so looking forward to that.

During a clear out I found some old pictures I mean't to get around to after Bonfire Night last year. I did a 1hr study and may go back to it when it's dry.
