More Paintings

Here is the entire piece that the previously posted detail is from:
Mexican Standoffish














And here is another:
My Treasures do not Glitter or Clink Together; they Gleam in the Sun and Neigh in the Night























The title for this piece is an old Arabian proverb that I have always found incredibly moving and evocative. 
Both of these paintings are on show in my little gallery at 309 Racecourse Road, Flemington Melbourne.  There are new works for sale and old works for show. Viewing is currently by appointment only (but you can pretty much see all the pieces from the street)

Muffins!

Here's the recipe for the lovely ladies from my life drawing class
(everyone knows you go to life drawing for the cake, right?)









Mini Marmalade Muffins
(makes 12 mini muffins)

Ingredients
110g plain flour
45g castor sugar
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
30g butter
¼ cup marmalade
1 egg
100ml of milk
1 tsp vanilla essence

Icing
lemon juice
marmalade
icing sugar

Melt butter and marmalade and set aside to cool.
Grease a mini muffin tin and preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Sift flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and lightly stir in sugar and salt.
In a separate bowl whisk egg, milk and vanilla essence then add butter and marmalade mixture.
Add to dry ingredients and stir carefully to combine.
Don't over mix as muffins will be tough.
Pour in to prepared muffin tin and cook for around 15 minutes, depending on your oven.
The tops of the muffins will still look quite pale when cooked so use a cake tester.

Ice when cool (not sure on the exact amounts so maybe start with juice of half a lemon and a tsp of marmalade, then stir in sufficient icing sugar with a fork to form a stiff icing).
 

Another one

I had a spare piece of wood so I painted a companion piece.

Watercolour Wednesday

Although I work in a lot of different mediums, watercolour was my first love and it's still one of my favourites.  Here's a selection from some of the books I've illustrated.
