Happy Belated New Year!



'One For the Road'


10" x 12" Original Oil Painting on Stretched Fine Cotton Canvas

Available 


Happy New Year to you all!

A little belated, I know... and let's face it, it already feels like it was ages ago, but this is my first post of 2017 and I am wishing you all wonderful things for the New Year.


I've never quite comprehended the phrase 'One for the Road'... After all, 'the road' is the last place anyone should be after consuming alcohol! 

I started painting this just before Christmas and as you can imagine, when I came back to it once the festivities were over, it was just about the last subject I needed to be looking at! But, they made an interesting subject to paint; All the dents, bumps and scuffs... I enjoyed it!

Next in line is a new marble painting, this time quite large... And I have several other paintings in mind to be getting on with as each layer dries.

So, watch this space and I'll be back again soon!

  3. Happy New Year, Sandra - and your painting is just eye catching! That lettering must have been so difficult but it looks like you painted it with ease!

  4. I thought I'd already commented on this but it must've been Facebook or Instagram!! I love this - the vibrant colours are right up my street! The detail in the script is fantastic and the name is perfect even though, like you, I think it's a strange expression - perhaps from a time when folk just wandered home from the local pub before the advent of cars!

    1. Thank you Nic! I had thought I might do a large one of the same subject, but I 'bottled out', lol! Well, I didn't really bottle out, but the small one took so long I decided that a large one can wait! :0)
