Recently finished this big oil painting of Tom Ray, who is one of my work colleagues at Lands' End. The well-crafted and acted film Starfish is about him, his family and the dangers/life changing consequences of sepsis.
I think Tom has always been an inspiration to all of us who know him; just a strong, compassionate human being who gets on with things despite many difficulties. For so many of us the word 'can't' is such a big part of our lives. For Tom I think the opposite is true. He can still drive, he can still go to work, he can still be a parent and husband, he can, he can, he can.
We could all learn from this - too many of us 'can't' even at the smallest setbacks.
I hope you like my painting.
Also, there is an upcoming exhibition involving Elli Dean, Connie Taylor and myself at the Victoria Hall in Oakham from the 12-17th June 2017. If you can make it would be great to see you there!

Over a month since my last update. Still very pleased about
the Mall Galleries. On top of which I have been working hard to get this
commission finished on behalf of Wok and Eat for their excellent Asian
take-away in Peterborough

Private View happened on Tuesday 5/4/16 with a huge crowd turning up and some excellent paintings and sketches on show. Rosie and myself managed to travel down to enjoy a few hours there soaking in the atmosphere and good art.
Below are a few images from the day, including a surprise the next morning when we checked the Mall Galleries website - whoever you are buyer, you have made me a proud and happy artist - thank you :)

No update for the past 2 months!
You may ask, am I actually working on
something. The answer is YES - always! The reason I have been unable to
post any images is because most were intended for Christmas and I did
not want to ruin anybody's surprise.
Here we go: Pen, Ink and Tea
staining, Labrador Duet - you can really see the different personalities
of each dog

Seems as though I have finally bit the bullet and joined Twitter. You can find my tweets at:https://twitter.com/ClintonCroson
Also, the recent exhibition opening at the Victoria Hall was a nice success. I put two of my more recent works in it, and they both look great. Bird of Prey and The Bookworm are both painted in Oils.
