Three fish.

The fish on top is a trout. The second one is (supposed to be) a grayling. The one at the bottom is a barracuda.

Here are two views of a painted pitcher. I've painted a number of flat surfaces and I'm becoming interested in painting curved surfaces.

Pint glass.

I'm becoming interested in painting glass. This pint glass looks quite nice (and is much more interesting!) when full of a lager or a pale ale.

One grid, many designs.

These designs are all based on a single geometric grid. It's interesting how many quite different designs can be generated from a single grid. I'm sure I've only scratched the surface. The round plates are all 13" or 14" in diameter.

Various coffee mugs.

A variety of coffee mugs.

Tea set.

Since this picture was taken, I've painted two more cups and saucers. I have yet to paint the sugar bowl and creamer.

Pheasant plate

The plate is 13" in diameter. The botanical aspect of the design is loosely based on a Persian original. In order to get the very light blues, I added an ivory white to the lapis blue, but I did not care for the flat opaqueness of the result after baking.
