This is my take on the state of football; its emotion, fervour and balance sheets which seem to sidestep the joy of participation and physicality that make it such a good game. I did consider including a group of lads kicking around on a piece of waste ground, but it was already becoming a bit muddled, but for me sport is really only about playing – rather like painting.

It was a year ago yesterday I started this madness – and I don’t mean the painting. I started with an oil so here is another oil. I keep meaning to do more but never get around to it. I did this with multiple glazes, but it got a little ragged trying to glaze around small objects. I would definitely tackle it differently if I did it again.

I did this acrylic painting some time ago and today was updating my website grahammcquadefineart.com and thought it might be good on my blog as they are looking to do some Fracking in our area So here it is.
I gave a copy of it away to a fellow painter who is in Greenpeace and she used it as part of a banner for a march she was on.
Painting the stars was a bit of fun, flicking white paint at the paper.
