This was taken during a visit to a small Masai village on the outskirts of the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. It was quite an eye opening experience to see how the traditional peoples of Kenya lived, still preserving their customs and tribal lands even as they survived on subsistence level farming of cattle and some income generated from the tourist industry. The children were so curious about my camera, all crowding around to have their photos taken and to see the results. This little boy was particularly shy but still intrigued by the camera. I couldn’t resist the expression on his face.

During the summer of 2006 I spent a lot of time in Leeds.. I became aware that the city sunset was very different.

One of my ‘daily paintings’! I studied fine art in South Africa and have always loved the effect of the harsh sunlight that we used to get there on objects and landscapes, often with very little shadow due to the angle of the sun. Consequently, I have become obsessed with the effect light has on objects, the inky, blue shadows cast or the sparkling highlights. To me, a painting is dead without these things! One of my favourite artists, Ken Howard RA is a master at catching the subtleties of light on a wooden floor or wet pavement!
I did a series of paintings using glass as it is always seen as a difficult subject to tackle and I wanted to master it. Actually, it is not as difficult as it first appears as long as you follow the ‘rules’; paint what you see not what you think you see!
I loved these little glasses in Ikea and actually bought them as a painting subject! The highlights cast from the glass onto the surface were wonderful!

Before moving home I painted the view from my garden. There was always a feeling of iminent unrest there but will always be my favourite place.

This image was created because of a character in a Terry Goodkind novel (Sword of Truth). The character – Nicholas the Slide – fascinated me in that he was tragic and evil at the same time. His motto is “Hate to live, live to hate”.

Jemma and the forest guards are still fighting a few remaining seed virus’ planted by the enemy during the “Dark Place incident”. Jemma, an adept, actually creates a spear from the absolute cold of outer space, focused through a special quartz crystal to wipe out the virus, just in time to save the little herbivore. Her friends join her to help, as usual.

Waiting out a heavy downpour during a lunchtime thunderstorm in Toronto (Canada). As I was watching the rain trickling down the glass, some interesting possibilities came to mind.

It was a very hard winter when this was taken. I was living in the middle of a beautiful cow pasture where the only food source for wildlife and especially birds during heavy snow, was the feeder I kept out for them, filled with seed. No matter how much I filled it, they always seemed hungry. They did a lot of bickering and pecking, as starlings often do. I roughened the image and created slight blur on some portions of a couple of the starlings, to express the flurry and hunger of these Winter Starlings.

This is a photo of a bicycle. The bike is about 4 inches long and 3 high. It is made with wire that a street vendor bends into shape in about 10 minutes. I saw this being done one day and had to buy a couple of them. The cost of this model bike was about $2.00
It was sitting on a shelf at home and I noticed the late afternoon sun had cast a shadow.

This image was taken at the tail end of a twenty-four inch snowstorm in Fishing Creek Valley, PA. There were winds gusting up to twenty-five mph, drifts and fifteen degree temperatures. I spent four hours chasing these guys in the snow to capture these images and it was a privilege to witness, let alone have the opportunity to photograph these magnificent animals. Tony
