What is it?

I must admit I didn't see what this was until I read the description. Do you?

In the early 1900s French fashion designer Jacques Doucet commissioned Joseph Csaky to carve this avant-garde lion's head - its dimensions based on those of the head of a real lion, at 32 cm in length and 23.2cm in height.

Estimated value today = €80k - €120k

What a stunning stylised piece and immediately obvious once you know what it is.

WW1 Propaganda Painting

This was a commissioned piece for our local WW1 commemoration. It was one of 10 commissioned pieces by local artists with the theme being; what was happening at home during the war?

Mine depicts the propaganda that was ubiquitous and so important to the war effort in keeping the populace motivated and engaged in the necessary activities. The most prominent was for King and country, hence the centre piece.

The black lines could denote many things from barbed wire to international borders, war plans and much more.

Mixed media and collage on box canvas

I think this one is called "Red Girl"

... another that lives with my sister since 20+ years ago.


Another original from way back just found on a CD...

This one is titled: "Winona's Eyes"...

Old Paintings Just Found


I just found a CD with my original abstract paintings from 20+ years ago - the original Abstract Girl here is nearly 30 years old and belongs to my sister. I was dissatisfied with it (as usual back then), and gave it to her in what I thought was an unfinished state.

Later I looked at it with new eyes and enjoyed it for the first time - I still do now.
I hope you do.
