Pirate Peyton Visits The Southern Shore Of New Zealand, 11″x14″, oil on canvas. Sold.
Pirate Peyton is pictured here with her loyal companion Victor. She can be fierce when the right occasion arises but on the whole she tends to act more like Robin Hood- stealing from the rich and giving some to the poor. She’s a gifted liar (underrated talent), her favourite food is a wild strawberry, and her preferred mode of dress is her mother’s lace wedding gown and a heavy black coat with teal lining.
Lastly, it should be mentioned that her sworn enemy is Pirate Jenny.
The Chirping Cricket, oil on canvas panel, 8″x10″. Sold.
One of my favourite things about summer are the sounds of crickets and cicadas. I think our dog and cat enjoy the sounds of crickets too as they seem to disappear into the kitchen in the evening and lie down near the open window. They don’t seem to do this at any other time of year so I’m chalking it up to nature. All we need is a pond and some frogs and that should complete the orchestra.
Summer is really on the brain. I wanted to put a dragonfly in with this particular piece but I had a very bad experience with one yesterday when I was walking Finnegan. It flew right into my face and for a split second I was certain I was being electrocuted. They’re fascinating to watch but take my word for it- if one flies towards you…..duck and close your mouth.
I did however put a little ladybug in. Just keeping it real.
