Portrait of the Day: The Old Artist : This is a very old artist … still painting ...when he could be sitting in the sun on some nice beach somewhere warm...but no...he is still trying to improve... still finding painting compelling and just can't stop creating new stuff..seeing what happens in the next painting...still full of ideas......what's that all about then?

Fruit of the Day : Moody Apple : I was trying to get a little moody in this one...just a spot light on the apple against a dark background...I left the highlight right to the last moment...after getting shadow of the stalk right...and them waiting...taking a deep breath and then painting it in.....thrilling! and the whole painting comes alive ….

View of the Day : Moonlit Harbour : There is nothing so nice as after spending a day out at sea to come back to the harbour that you left 6 hours ago ad have managed to find your way back…it's a real thrill to see the harbour from miles away and gradually sailing nearer and nearer to the entrance ....knowing that in half an hour you can be in the warm and cozy bar eating and drinking and looking forward to a good nights sleep.

Tweet of the Day : The Dipper : A short-tailed, plump bird with a low, whirring flight. When perched on a rock it habitually bobs up and down and frequently cocks its tail. Its white throat and breast contrasts with its dark body plumage. It is remarkable in its method of walking into and under water in search of food usually up stream.
