British Apple on Pink

5'' x  5'' inches, watercolour

My favourite apples are back in the shops - it's the season for British apples, the ones that grew in fresh air orchards, sun kissed and washed by the rains. This reminds me not to be sad about summer disappearing. Autumn is going to be glorious.

Sasha With Peaches

This is an experiment with Picasa. This portrait of my daughter is a homage to one of my most favourite artists - Valentin Serov. He painted an iconic image called "The Girl with Peaches" and I repeated it substituting the real model with my daughter's face. This painting has been displayed in The Orleans House Gallery last year as a part of thier successful Making it?Faking it exhibition. To my total amazement it has been sold.
