As emci's it

Born in Leicester , UK , I immigrated to New Zealand in '65 along with my wife and family just in time to celebrate my 30th birthday .Art was a subject that was dropped at school for more "useful" subjects but I still retained a latent interest in black and white. Initially living "in the country" here , my interest in scenery was stirred to start me drawing and from there via oils to watercolour and , more recently to mixed medias including one using indian ink.. I thoroughly enjoy this hobby which is primarily self taught and paint for my enjoyment first and foremost. If other people like my paintings then it is an added pleasure..Scenery dominates because I am totally surrounded by it with living in New Zealand. As a "visitor", I have also seen the UK with different eyes and some of these paintings show that as well.

Comments

g'day Adele , thanks for the comments. I am painting most of the time - I still work 3 days a week for my sins but enjoy the painting , mainly, at night. I do have a fair number and suddenly decided to put them onto this gallery so they may be out of sequence some what. As I said, I paint for my own enjoyment and whilst I do show with two (fairly) local art societies it is rather an insular pursuit and I am looking forward to comments/critique from "strangers" who can be brutally honest with not knowing me. I did show in two "Open Studios" and was pleasantly surprised with the comments received then.. cheers Mike C.

Hi Mike - Some lovely paintings on your gallery. I noticed that you have a few put on about 2 years ago and then nothing up until now. Quite a long gap. Anyway pleased you are here now and looking forward to seeing lots more of your work.
