“Skull and Microscope” – Oil on Linen, 30 x 24 inches. This is the start of another painting in my “Anatomical Series”. I intended to start with a light Frottee but it turned into a more solid and direct 1st painting. I’ll let this dry before beginning the 2nd overall painting.

Looks like I will be having a solo exhibition in Edinburgh probably the last week in May. Details to follow in next couple of days….

“Tartan Shirt” – Oil on Linen, 16 x 12 inches. This is part of my “Anatomical Series”, a Frottee of local color has been used to block in the painting.

As the Frottee is a little thicker than normal I’ll let this dry before beginning the 1st overall painting. My thoughts are with the Japanese people in their current desperate circumstances.
