Messengers of the Gods
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a 4 crows in an abstract winter forest. The crows fly in elegant formation against an abstract, art nouveau type background that looks like a winter forest at sunset or dusk. However, it has been deliberately blurred to make it look distant. The crows by comparison have been painted very sharply so that they are obviously near to the foreground. Strange patterns that are reminiscent of pagan runes surround the crows which make the scene slightly mysterious. It was inspired by the fact that crows are often thought of as spiritual messengers and by the fact that I often feel they are monitoring me when I walk in their territory and reporting my progress to someone! I like a mystery and I love crows. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Nature Calls - a large autumn landscape with stag
A 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large semi abstract original oil painting of an autumn forest with a stag. Have you ever walked in a forest and felt energized by the feeling of mystery or promise of revelation that it can induce?. The sound of birds, the smell of the moss and leaves, a glimpse of a deer or fox are all timeless experiences - especially in autumn when the sun is low and shafts of light shine though the trees making dappled patches of light on the path. I tried to capture this feeling with this painting. The revelation, whatever it is, is at the other side of the forest... Deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed.
Forest Souls - an autumn forest with deer
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a large semi abstract autumn forest with deer. The landscape shows an abstract forest with a row of deer stags and does silhouetted against the light through the trees. They stand looking from two sides of a forest and there is a hint of waterfall or lake in the distance. The colours are very warm and vibrant. The deer watch silently. They wait to lead those with a sense of adventure to an exciting new world of possibilities... Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
