The Chalk Path
The Chalk Path is an oil painting of a winding white chalk path through the Sussex countryside in springtime. It is 30x30x1.5 inches and was painted from my memory as I recalled a walk up the South Downs near Ditchling last spring. The path winds through fields and meadows and wildflowers up towards the ridge of hills that make up the Downs in the distance. There is a pink and purple blossom tree on the left among the hedgerows and gorse bushes. The edges of the painting are blended and blurred and the centre of it has bigger and bolder brush strokes to give the feeling of looking into a memory and drawing you into the landscape. One of the things that makes me love paintings is the fact that you can be somewhere else in an instant when you look at one. I liked being here and I am happy that I have captured a moment of my life that I loved and hopefully will make a few other people happy too. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang.

Home is where the heart is; donât see it as a prison; lockdown, sit tight, starve Corona to make things right. The Government are lifting restrictions but that could be suicide; if weâre not all careful and vigilant, then we could all be destroyed! The virus is easily spread: just touch something contaminated, then absent minded, you rub your eye â itâs a recipe to die! The virus is easily spread, get that into your head! Lets starve Covid 19 of human hosts â stay indoors â or weâll end up as ghosts! Millions of deaths globally and still counting, stay home â stop the death toll mounting! If we try and get back to normal too quick, itâll all get worse and more will get sick. The Government want non-essential workers to go ahead, but you canât spend your earnings when youâre dead! Peopleâs lives are more important than the economy, if you agree, then follow me, lockdown for longer, prevent a second spike, itâll be better in the long run, Corona will take a hike! If we act like things are normal, mixing and demonstrating in crowds, weâll be in it for the long haul â thatâs if weâre here at all! Corona will just love it â lots of human hosts to infect, but our lives we MUST protect! Millions of deaths have left loved ones grieving, the way some people carry on has got me seething; our lives are in each otherâs hands, consideration is what this demands, the human race is on the brink, do YOU want to be extinct?
This is an oil painting on canvas of some beautiful red, yellow and white flowers that were given to me as a present for Mother's Day. I couldn't resist painting them and I hope you like them as much as I do. It is painted on all sides so can be hung without a frame if desired or you can frame it to your liking. It also has a coat of varnish.
