In the Fibonacci sequence the next number is the sum of the previous two numbers. So it begins 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 . It regularly occurs in nature. For example in the diameter of consecutive turns of a snail shell. This work illustrates this as a sequence of turned beech spheres of 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8cm diameter. In addition to which the distance between the spheres is also in the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3 and 5 cm. These are mounted on a 2.5cm x 11cm (maximum) x 35 cm tapered English oak plinth. The piece weighs 0.75kg. It is the work of David Boyd FRSC, who is a scientist specialising in scientific and geometric artworks.

Spirits of Winter
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large contemporary landscape painting of two deer in a snowy birch tree forest. It is painted in semi abstract, art nouveau style with realistic deer contrasting against the abstract landscape. The trees are loosely based on aspen or birch trees and the perspective is arranged to make the deer look as if they both have their own path into the woods. They are arranged almost as a mirror image of each-other because to me that looks balanced. The paint is very thick in places and patterns can be seen forming in the snow if you look closely at it. It was inspired by a trip the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey where there are herds of of roe and red deer including a white stag. I always find deer enchanting and ethereal and in winter they are even more so as they can be spotted more easily than usual against the pristine white snow. However they can still vanish in the blink of an eye and mange to retain their mystery. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed.
The Azure Window.
An abstract painting inspired by a coastal rock archway formation on the island of Gozo, Malta which was one of the islands main tourist attractions before it collapsed in a storm in 2017. It is painted in oils on canvas with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it can be framed if you so wish.

This beautiful pink and purple tree was inspired by seeing the blossom on the trees, but with the bad weather recently i felt if i put it on a monochrome background it would depict how the signs of springtime and all its beauty was on its way, and even though the skies were dull, the beauty of the blossom and hues of pinks still shone through despite nature trying to dull it down.
