This painting was commissioned for a family member as they used to live in Middlesbrough and now live in Australia. People have commented saying this painting is very atmospheric and love the colours of the sky and water. This painting now takes pride of place on a wall all the way over the other side of the world in Australia.
This painting of a family pet that had passed away was particularly challenging as I had to paint it from old faded photographs. The look on her face when she saw the painting was priceless. She said I had captured Cola just as she was.
This painting was commissioned as a birthday present and it is of the Town Wall at the Headland Hartlepool from a picture about 100 years old. She was over the moon with it as she grew up there.
