 I have much experience of painting in Spain. Works of Spanish subjects are widely available....Also remember that I do animal portraits, so if  you have a pet or if like me, you sponsor an animal for a charity..?!

All my bespoke framing is handled by Stuart Tunwell, Duck End Green, near Braintree in Essex UK. Tel 01376 329529


Please note that I can do 'life studies' or nudes, but these have to be on my terms, such as partner present or from 'decent' photographs

 eg. in swimwear!


Tips: run out of wall space? Why not store more art - however small - and then change things around from time to time?! Seasonal images can

 even be changed around with the seasons. Avoid storage in cold damp conditions. In fact, it's good to occasionally check behind a hung picture,

 especially if it is attached to an 'outside wall' within a room. For 'serious framing', it's also possible these days to look to use acid free materials

 for mounting....so as to prolong the life of any work on paper. Watch out for frequent or long periods of sunlight upon coloured pencil drawings;

 very close heaters near canvases or framed works...You can ask your framer if 'UV' glass is available, but watch for price.

  Actually, why not have frame with - or just use - a stand and not display on a wall at all?!!    Enjoy!!
