Ham Radio operator-highlights Red Amaryllis.  For all those have requested more pictures of flowers I have uploaded these beautiful pictures of an Amaryllis, they are quite difficult to grow, think it depends on where you buy the bulbs, however, these red flowers have survived a couple of years flowering around Christmas time.

Ham radio operator-Video of South Shields.    Thanks again for your comments about my website, many have focused on Kevin Keegan and Alan Shearer, people from all over the world like these paintings which I created a number of years ago, the originals were sent off to fans of Newcastle United football club after they enquired about sports portraits after seeing Niall Quinn.

Niall was published as a limited edition print run, they were on sale at the Stadium of light in Sunderland and also in the Sunderland football club shop within the Galleries in Washington. Niall's portraits were prompted after a fan-made an inquiry, amazing how much of my artwork has been created after others were inspired to ask if such work could be created.



All of my work is created on Belgium linen canvas, I buy most of it direct from manufacturers, the canvas is treated in gesso then I patiently draw on the subject, and after it all dries thoroughly, I start applying color. I work in OIL on CANVAS only, why, nothing, in my opinion, beats the tones achievable when mixing oil paint-it is so vivid and produces realism like nothing else.

Thank you again for commenting on my oil on canvas portraits-very much appreciated.

Ham radio operator-captures Durham Big Meeting. Many readers have commented on my website in general and you have continued to aspire me to add to my oil portraits on canvas theme by uploading events that happen yearly in Washington. 

There are people who worked at the F pit in Washington and have fond memories of Durham big meeting, it used to start at the Welfare Hall on spout lane many years ago and march along Shafto terrace where miners would board coaches to take them to the city of Durham.

My videos below share some of the activities from the band as they march to their buses parked behind the concord bus stand.
