This is an open edition laser print of an original painting done in a naive style which was inspired by a short surreal verse written by myself which reads as follows: Tiger, Tiger you gave me such a fright. Bells are ringing, choirs are singing all through the night. It has a 2 inch wide cream mount which will fit in a 14x12 inch frame. If you would like it without the mount or with a frame please contact me, also if you are interested in a gift voucher/certificate.

Abstract artwork on deep edge box canvas. This is done via a pouring acrylics method, and is varnished ready to hang. The edges match the front and it can be framed or hung as it is. This work is 10 inches high by 10 inches wide as displayed but can be hung in any direction. Varnished and ready to hang. Postage to mainland UK is included, postage abroad can be quoted for on request. commissions I accept commissions for these pouring acrylics, you choose size and colours from 3 to 8, and I'll do two paintings, you choose which you want. Its an unpredictable way of painting so results are very variable. If you want a bias of one or two colours, or mainly cells or stripes/bands of colour, I'll do my best but can't be precise. I don't want anyone buying an artwork they're not happy with, so though I ask for a non-refundable deposit of 25% final purchase price towards costs of materials, I won't hold you to buying if you really don't like either of the final results, but I'm certain that just won't happen. Cost depends on size, for example 8 x 10 inch paintings are all £28 inc P&P, 6 x 16 inches at £38 , 8 x 20 inches at £52, and square at 20 x 20 inches at£84. I can do other sizes on request.
Revelation - a path through an autumn wood
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a path through an autumn wood. Three female deer and one stag watch from the right as the light beckons though the trees. It promises a discovery of some kind. The style is slightly art nouveau, semi abstract and is painted to give a blurred out of focus effect. This path through a forest is a persistent theme for me as I walk often in woodland like this. And when I do, I am forever feeling like I will discover something magical just around the next bend. The trees whisper it, the sunlight hints at it, the deer lead to it. Maybe one day I will find it (whatever it is!)
Lipstick on My Choos
Poor Little Betty
This an open edition laser print of an original painting which was inspired by a short surreal verse written by myself which reads as follows: Poor little Betty slept on a jetty all day and night. Cat's whiskers grew long and all day the sun shone while Jonathan flew his kite. It is in a 1 1/2 inch wide cream mount which will fit in a 14x11 inch frame. If you would like it unmounted or framed please contact me, also if you are interested in a gift voucher/certificate.
A surreal image that emerged organically from the process of blending watercolours and pencils with random shapes. The overall mood of the image is 'expectant'. The piece comes complete with a double mount on conservation grade mount board with conservation barrier backboard (including cellophane wrap). Mount colour: Black - inner bezel colour: white.
This wren is flying backwards to catch a fly, and I thought his pose was so acrobatic that I chose crazy colours and a rather abstract approach to match his zany antics. Painted in acrylics on a 40x40cm canvas ready to hang. All sides are painted, as per Gallery hanging requirements. The work is signed on the front, and a Certificate of Authenticity is included in the purchase.
