Catspaw framed

 Greetings

I do all my own mounting and framing, as it cuts down on my costs.

I often use second hand frames.

I have not blogged about this before,as it it nigh on impossible to get a nice photo of a glazed piece(due to all the reflections- as I may have mentioned before, I'm a painter-not a photographer..)

I have used this frame before on a painting that now languishes in a portfolio, but I discocvered it fits my new painting 'Catspaw' very well indeed.


Until next time

Dragon Blade

 Greetings

Here is a new piece of computer art based on an old acrylic painting I did some years ago.


I first painted the image before I started using airbrush and have now been able to achieve some of the effects that I could not at that time.

As usual, I have made several versions, which I will post later.

Until next time

12th Night

 Greetings

Whilst I celebrate Christmas the Medieval way (from Martinmas on 11 November to Candlemas on 2 February), I try to limit my festive meals to three.

I usually enjoy a meal with my fellow Paladins of Chivalry early in December, this is followed by the meal on Christmas Day and , finally, by a meal for Twelfth Night( which I usually have on  6 January).

I do not often blog pictures of meals, but this is an exception, as I use my favourite china, best glassware and silver cutlery for my meal of roast duck breast with roast potatoes, cranberry & apple stuffing, bread sauce, cranberry & orange sauce, pigs-in-blankets and red cabbage with cranberry.

Served with a red wine.

Dessert is, of course, Christmas Pudding with my own brandy butter( I am not niggardly with the brandy)- served with Vintage Port.


This is also one of the rare occasions when my antique table is not covered and protected by its  heat-proof tablecloth.

Until next time

Adieu
