Red King - a red stag in a red forest
A 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large semi abstract original oil painting of a red stag in a red and yellow autumnal forest. The red stag looks at us having emerged from the trees. He wonders why we are there. Although he himself is bright red he is still fairly realistic but a crack in the scenery divides him from us and there are patterns around him that make the painting slightly abstract and art nouveau. As always the painting was inspired by the small glimpses I get of deer on my regular walks in Sussex. They are always slightly mystical and the glimpse is always fleeting but stays with me. Painted on deep edge canvas, edges white, frame not needed.
"A La Chandelle (By Candle Light)
This is Claudine, a beautiful young lady of French Polynesian origin who, with her husband Armand, runs a marvellous little restaurant just off the chic (and very expensive) main street in the town of Aix-en-Provence in the south of France former home of Paul Cezanne. Their very reasonably priced restaurant is one for the gourmet and serves meals in a wonderfully romantic atmosphere enhanced by the mellow lighting from the candles hence the inspiration for this painting. The work is painted in oil on a stretched canvas and is set in a contemporary dark mahogany effect tray frame measuring 88 cm x 68 cm x 35mm overall. It is strung ready for immediate hanging.
This painting takes the name of a cuban song called "midnight virgin". " Lady of sin Cradle of my song I came kneeling next to your heart" I like the stance of the girl as if it were very innocent same with the expresion in her face, however the use of strokes and color depict her sensual character.

Bamburgh castle Northumberland
Wildflower Poppy Meadow
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.
