When I did that meme in yesterday's post, it came to my attention that whatever LJ did to the Scrapbook some time ago completely messed up the links embedded in my old posts containing photos of my paintings.

I've managed to retrieve some of the photos and popped them in an album on Flickr so I have a record of them. This made me recall that a fair few of them are now in the possession of friends, some of them thousands of miles away, and thus I become even more annoyed with LJ for "disappearing" a random assortment of the high-res versions.

This is titled "Home" and is drawn from my memories of the Big Island (Hawai'i), which I visited from Oahu as a child. It's the first one I did after moving to London. Hangs above the stairwell in our house.

I used to love sitting on the beach and combing through small sections of sand looking for tiny, perfect shells. This painting lives in London.

"California". You know, when you fly in from the east, over the desert. This triptych lives in Los Angeles.

"Shattered City". This lives in a box under the bed. :/

"Atoll, Island, Beach, Rock Pool." I had originally planned for this to be six pieces, each at a different scale, but they took so very long that I only ended up making four. They're tiny, too; 6"x6" canvases. They were only ever meant to be a study for bigger versions. These hang on the walls of our house.

Closeup of "Beach". This one is my favourite.

"City Lights". This triptych lives in San Francisco.

"Bones 1". This triptych lives in Florida (I think; I haven't heard from its possessor in a while).

"Bones 2".

"Norfolk". This pair hangs on our bedroom walls.

If I gave this a title, I can't remember it. This painting lives in New Zealand.

Closeup of the texture. I really liked the effect of the metallic wash.

I should very much like to get back into painting, as all of these were executed well before the children were born.
