In the beginning I found that many paintings were telling me stories that I could recognise even though I had no conscious thought about the subject matter when working on the painting. I would just start and see where it took me. I would usually see the stories after I finished the painting, sometimes long after. Some are still telling me parts of their story. A sort of back to front way of working. I was (and still am) very attached to my early pieces,

When friends liked my work and wanted a painting I was very reluctant to part with these pieces, I felt they had special meaning for me and were worth more than the money I could realistically ask for them. Once I pointed out the stories I was seeing, I found people were fascinated and were then interested in having their own personal painting with personal meaning for them. I began doing paintings that I loosely called "reading" paintings.

On display here you can see examples of some of those paintings.

If you would like to order your own intuitvely painted personal reading painting I am working in two sizes as follows:

30cm x 30cm (12" x 12") NZ$ 300
plus postage and packaging NZ$30

46cm x 46cm (18" x18") NZ$ 500
plus postage and packaging NZ$50

Larger or smaller sizes by negotiation.

I don't need to know anything about you, a name is sufficient.

Once painting is completed a digital image will be sent to you for approval. If for any reason you are not happy with the image there is no obligation to take the painting.

A variation on the reading painting is an affirmation painting. An affirmation will be written on the canvas and then intuitively painted over. You supply the affirmation.

Contact me for further details.
