Sorry guys, I know I was not active here for some time but that dose not stop me thinking about you all and I hope to visit your blogs soon. Thank you for taking time to regularly visit my Blog it is well appreciated. I also would like to thank all the great people I met recently everywhere I was. I would like to dedicate and share one of my recent paintings here, with you all, ‘Only one left a live outside’… Even if it is difficult at times I try to paint something that always keep me smiling. You are always welcome to visit me on Facebook which is much easier for me to use sometime or you welcome to enjoy some of my latest work as and when I put it on my website. Stay safe where ever you are and keep smiling 🙂 x
I did not visit the blog for sometime and I could give you plenty reason why… but actually it doesn’t matter as the bottom line I know that I missed you all very much and I apologise. It does not to say that I will be here more at the moment now even my laptop is declaring sick… I rebuild it and yet it still suffering… maybe my chronic pains is catching. I found this post and a painting I start last year…. At the moment I would call it Working on London.. Still it is work in progress and I am thinking about the final colours and final look.. I can tell you that I have changed it all to turquoise colour with blue and white… but somehow it don’t seems the colour. I am into lively colours so no doubt something will come along before another year have gone…. Hope you are all well and you kept in good shape during the winter and like good flowers ready for another ‘Spring’. I did paint all along so hopefully I’ll manage to publish few more posts which I left here waiting..in the next coming weeks.. see you soon.

I received a commission to paint a school for a great teacher that retired after many years working in this school. It is a very special building and as I had only short time I painted a sketch in water colours and did the main painting in Acrylics. There were so many details and windows that for the first time I used the squares to divide my page and get the building right in perspective. I have tried to paint it more freely as I thought it will give the building a better feeling and interesting character as I saw it, instead of doing it with very straight square lines. To me it was a very special building as I saw it from the outside with great history and I wanted to give it more life while painting it. After all the idea was to paint it and not to photograph it. I hope the teacher enjoyed their present as much as I enjoyed painting this amazing building.

I participate in a charity event to raise money for ‘Mind organisation’ and would appreciate if you can find a friend that will help to support them too. I am sure you will, once you see the interesting list of artists… Thanks, Doron (I’ll present my painting after the opening evening as requested by the organisers).
Have you heard about our Mini Mystery Masterpiece initiative?
50 local people, artists and public figures are creating artwork (postcard size) in the style of Mind. They are aiming to use one continuous line based on the “squiggle” (formal name “blue spider”) in Mind’s logo. The interpretations so far are very different and fantastic! The idea is that we sell all 50 mini masterpieces for £15 each in advance of an evening unveiling event on World Mental Health Day (10th October) at Barclays Bank. Who will take home which mini mystery masterpiece?
With 50 amazing Mini Masterpieces available, this event is proving popular and already we have our 50 artists! If you’d like to buy a Mini Masterpiece, you can make your purchase via http://sevenoaksareamind.org.uk/magical/mystery-mini-masterpieces or by emailing me to reserve one and sending in a cheque for £15 made payable to “Sevenoaks Area Mind” please.
Note that you do not need to attend the evening to purchase a ticket (although finding out which mini masterpiece you have won on the night is part of the fun!)
These tickets are proving popular so if you are interested please do act now!
Once purchased we will send you a ticket and on the night of World Mental Health day you can exchange this for a drawn number and match this number to the numbered displayed mini masterpieces to see which one you are to take home.
Please check out our website for more information on the 50 artists participating but note that local artist Melvyn Evans is supporting this fundraising initiative and one of the Mini Masterpieces will be his. His style of work can be viewed at www.melvynevans.com. Other Artists and Celebrities are participating by creating Mini Masterpieces including:
