Being what was once known as a “commercial artist” in my working life I have painted various subjects for many years mainly as a hobby, some with success, others not so, now you can be the judge.
For many years I sold my paintings through the Luvane Gallery in Goodall Street which was housed in a building that I knew well, Walsall School of Art. The gallery was run by Nigel Tonks who later passed the business to his nephew on his retirement but sadly things didn’t go to plan and the gallery closed around 2012.
As much of my working life was spent illustrating technical subjects it will be of no great surprise to see this also crept into my hobby. In recent years I have been painting steam locomotives but prior to that I produced paintings of cars and was a member of the Guild of Motoring Artists, this new page is dedicated to those paintings. The Luvane Gallery sold virtually all I could paint on that subject, when the gallery closed only two automotive paintings remained, sadly they are now in my loft!

Sometimes WordPress surprises me! One day no captions were appearing under each image, today they are, great! However the spacing problem is still occurring, think I will live with that though.
