Maida Vale station painting

Maida Vale Tube Station, London

Maida Vale Tube Station, London

Maida Vale tube was opened in 1915, and was entirely staffed by women for the first four years. It is always a pleasure popping out of the ground at one of these old tube stations. You KNOW you are in London. You have the same effect in Paris with their elegant Art-Deco Metros.

The painting is available as a limited edition print

The Pub, Valletta, Malta

The Pub, Valletta, Malta

No self-respecting Brit who likes the odd pint could visit Malta without dropping into the last watering hole of the late Oliver Reed. On May 2 1999, Oliver Reed visited The Pub while on a break in the filming of Ridley Scott’s epic Gladiator.

A painting of Pilton Church, Somerset

Like many ancient sites the church here in Pilton has been added-to over the centuries. In this case that’s a very long time indeed, over a thousand years in fact.

It was first mentioned in a charter by king Ine (whoever he was) in 725, and was under the direct obedience to the Abbot Of Glastonbury.

I painted it from a bench.

St Pauls choir school Painting

St Paul’s Old Choir School in the City of London

St Paul’s Old Choir School in the City of London

Just across the road from St Paul’s and down the wee side street of Dean’s Court you will find Carter Lane and here you will discover the old St Paul’s Cathedral Choir School.

Although this structure was built in 1874 it is very much in keeping with the style of the Cathedral and has a distinct Italian Baroque feel about it.  You could easily imagine this building tucked away down a back street in Florence or Sienna.

There is a Painting Story on this piece.
