oil on canvas, 60 x 150cms, 2009

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve sold my first painting solely from the buyer first seeing it on my website this weekend. ‘Endings’, above, has been a painting that many people have positively commented on since I posted it on the site last year and was recently exhibited at Tregoning Fine Art in Derby. But it has only been now that someone has gone that stage further and bought it.

Buying a painting for the home can be a big commitment, so they ‘trialled’ it in their house for a week to see whether they could live with it. I’m glad to say they could, and I’m going to help install it tomorrow. If anyone else wants to ‘trial’ a painting they’ve seen on the website, I think it’s a sensible idea that I’m happy to negotiate. Just let me know…
