Forest Elemental is a 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches oil on canvas of a large deer stag materialising in an autumn forest. The style is semi abstract contemporary and is highly colourful. I have used a golden yellow glaze of paint to make it glow. This painting was started after I took a walk around the Kent High Weald area near Ide Hill (postcode TN14 6JW). I did see deer and I did go through some beautifully vibrant patches of woodland that were turning gold and red as part of the autumn display. There was a smell of oak leaves (the best autumn smell!) and lots of dappled golden light. It was quite magical and that is probably why I painted the stag as a magical being rather that a mundane one. The term Elemental means a spirit or guardian that looks after certain places. I like to think this big stag was looking after the ancient trees I was walking past. One of the reasons I paint woodland scenes is that it fascinates me how the atmospheres vary from woodland to woodland. Some are calming and pleasant and some can be downright scary. It is not hard for me, therefore, to imagine some of them have spirit guardians. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed
Contemporary painting of yellow poppies against a textured and graduated background. The poppy petals have also been painted using plenty of texture so they catch the light and generate a new perspective from all angles. This painting is bright and cheerful and will brighten up any living space. The painting continues round the edges of the canvas making it ready to hang with no framing necessary. This painting is on a deep edge box canvas and has been finished with a protective satin varnish.

The Lady Washington Brig
Original pastel painting of the square-rigged sailing vessel, the Lady Washington, seen at anchor in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. My thanks to Michael Ryan for permission to use his wonderful reference photograph. Image size 13.5" x 19.5" (35cm x 50cm), Panpastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmat board (unframed). The first Lady Washington was a 90-ton brig named after Martha Washington. She was the first American-flagged vessel to round Cape Horn, making landfall in Oregon in 1788. She took part in the fur trade and carried tea and porcelain across the Pacific from China. She was the first US ship to reach Japan, but was lost off the Philippines in 1797. The present Lady Washington is a full scale replica, launched in 1989 and sails up and down the coast of California, Oregon and Washington, offering educational programs.
