Hello, Derek. Just 'approved' you as pal...and had a great visit here with all your work. Ah! Lily of the Valley! Keep yourself safe, Mister Soldier Sir, in this mean and crazy old world.


Just checking out your work once again, nice colors. Have you ever tried using oil?


I keep coming back to your empty landscapes - they are wonderful. Margaret, Artist at Work

Thanks for the welcome to map Derek. Love your water color work. I tried watercolor years ago, that is why I work with oil paint.


Hi just to let you know ive added a few more images to my page now and re-jigged my galleries a bit..look forward to hearing your comments..tra for now..sarah brain


I just finished a new piece. It's called "Spiritual Guidence", last image located in my Gallery Tour. There are 3 hidden images in the middle part. Relax your eyes and stare into the middle. Jesus is the main image, an angel below Him and a small Cherub below the angel. Have fun finding all of them. Tell me what you think.


Your work is brilliant, Derek! My favourite piece is "Daisy". Love the colours used, mixed with charcoal. Very effective.


Your seascapes are very beautiful, Derek! Wonderful use of colour and great atmosphere.


Just stopping in to check for new stuff--I love your paintings of flowers! I've just finished two digital collages, titled "Stage IV" and "Despair". I'd love to know what you think of them if you have the time to look. They are in my "Newly Added" gallery. Thanks! May

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne
