I had a successful exhibition of 21 paintings at the Ex Liceo Artistico in Cagliari, Sardinia that finished on the 1st December. Good sales and a commission.
Recently completed a commissioned copy of J.W. Waterhouse's 'Pandora's Box'. See 'Copies of Paintings' in 'Gallery'.
Recently completed a commissioned lifesize copy of Modigliani's 'La Belle Romaine'. It's now in Rome.
Recently completed a commission to paint the door to the London office of Stranger & Stranger with their company logo on the outside and a 5' high depiction of the glass-shaped part of it on the inside (see 'Miscellaneous Commissions' in 'Gallery').
See 'Painted furniture and wall panels' in 'gallery' for a new range of painted furniture and wall panels inspired by great artists of the past.
I recently completed a mural restoration in the St. John's Wood home of Avi Rossini whose premises in New Bond Street provide high quality clothing for some of the world's wealthier gentlemen. The mural, painted about 10 years ago, was already suffering from very widespread flaking due largely, I suspect, to its proximity to a large sauna area.

In October 2008 I spent several days at the Orgatec design fare in Cologne where I was asked to do an oil painting on canvas measuring 150cmx120cm. The commission was from a Chinese company called Comfort Seating who produce designer office chairs.
As well as my own landscapes, portraits, murals etc., I also do copies of paintings so I was asked to reproduce a rather modified oil painting of the famous Michaelangelo image of God creating Adam with my version replacing Adam with Comfort Seating's latest hi-tec chair. I had 4 days in which to complete it and the work was carried out in the middle of their large exhibition area where I was photographed and filmed much of the time as I worked, with many of the visitors approaching me to chat and have their photos taken with this London artist in front of his picture. It seemed a clever enough idea as the painting attracted a lot of interest, bringing people into the exhibition area to view the chairs. The oil painting has now been taken to their headquarters in China and the image will be used for further publicity. Comfort Seating were very hospitable towards me and I wish them every success.
More images of the oil painting can be seen in the 'gallery' page of this website.
