Guess What from where ? by 


Enlarged close up for unusual finds

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    Looks like a lens from a lighthouse to me

  • Yes you are right, old UK lighthouse optics. Not many people see these in-situ. See 2 images back for original photo. You could made a kaleidoscope image from it quite easily!
    Cheers Neil
    Love your portfolio, I must study it further.

    My Great Uncle Owen was the last lighthouse keepers in Australia, on a little island in the middle of the Great Southern Ocean called Maatsuyker Island which is dutch for sugarloaf. There’s a picture of him on a website inside the lighthouse prisim. Great work of an interesting piece. My late Grandfather was also involed with lighthouses, working on a ship called the Cape Pillar, where they travelled around Australia building and maintaining automated lighthouses and supplying the manned one till they were all automated. The Ship was eventually paid off and he moved onto a Oceangraphic research ship.
