The Maybe Man
After Sir Anthony van Dyck, 'Studies of a Man’s Head'
20” x 15” (51 x 38 cm)
Acrylic on gessoed panel
‘The Maybe Man’ is a copy of van Dyck’s, Studies of a Man’s Head, a work that hangs in the Rockox House Museum, Antwerp. I made this copy from photographs. Who is the model? Was he a real person, a real someone who lived and breathed? Or was he just a figment - a pigment figment - of the great artist’s imagination? That’s not the point. Why is the man lost in contemplation? Only Sir Anthony van Dyck, could tell us.

A First. In 2020, one of my paintings, The Treasure of Britwell Salome - Matins was accepted by the The Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) for exhibition at their Annual Show.

GUARANTEED TO LAST 1000 YEARS
I live by the rule, when you’re painting you’re not only making art, you’re making furniture. I use the finest light-fast oil, acrylic and watercolour paints, and work on hardboard. If you don’t damage, burn or submerge the paintings, they should last 1000 years. If they don’t, well, get back to me.
