'Gisleni's Grave, S.M. del Popola', pencil on paper, 2010.
Watching a movie the other night, I saw the carved 'memento mori' from Gisleni's grave in the Santa Maria del Popola church in Rome. I found a picture of it on the internet and drew this picture from that, I'm reasonably happy with this but it does need some work.

"Waitakere View', 1998.
I found some old and worn slides from art school and have had them put into digital form. The original photo's aren't the best but they give an idea of what my first landscapes were like.

'Ellie Sleeping', pencil on paper, 2010 (from old photo).
Ellie May, aka the 'Paeroa Princess', aka 'Lady Muck', aka 'The Runt', aka 'Smellie Ellie', likes to sleep sitting up on her bum on the couch like a person and has done ever since the photo this was drawn from, was taken at six weeks old. I'm not usually one for realistic drawings as I usually just scribble information down for paintings, but this is a nice change.
