Ian Foster 25 August 1938 – 16 January 2014

After a long illness my father passed away in January this year.  I hope that perhaps somewhere now he is now able to enjoy his art and the abstract painting that he had been unable to pursue recently.

Return to Minimalism

I seem to have strayed a long way from the minimalism that I am very keen on so here is a work that gets me back on the straight and narrow again.

January texture

I find texture in paintings very appealing and have been using a new technique on my last few paintings, since Christmas I have been trying to develop this further, here is my most recently completed work.

Winter solstice

This is the first in a planned series of four depicting the seasons of the year, I hope this works out satisfactorily. I have already made a start on Spring only to paint it all out and start again, I hope for better luck this time.

Untitled (as yet)


After a lengthy absence, at last, a new painting to post, as yet untitled.
I am not sure this is the right way to approach titling but in this case that is the way it is.

Any suggestions would be welcome.
