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.
Tiger Realm - a tiger abstract landscape
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a tiger in a semi abstract kingdom. The tiger is in stalking mode as she climbs a tree over a deep gorge and looks to the right where she has spotted something off in the distance. The background colours shimmer in tones of green, purple, yellow and pinks. It hints at trees and rocks and maybe a waterfall in abstract art nouveau style. Once again, I wanted to paint a scene where a tigress can live without fear of harm. We are voyeurs on her world which she can fade in and out of whenever she chooses. It is her domain and I am happy to have provided it for her. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
"MIMOSA IN BLUE VASE
This is a colourful and realistic, highly detailed painting of sprigs of Mimosa in an old blue vase. It brings the warmth of the south of France into the home. It is painted on a standard depth stretched canvas and is set in a contemporary white tray frame measuring 48cm x 48 cm x 35 mm overall.
This beautiful oil painting was inspired by some sunflowers that I had grown in my garden. I have captured their beauty in a wild natural state and yet it is also impressionistic. It has been hung in the Leeds City Art Gallery Open Exhibition. I have shown two photos of it, one of it unframed and one of it framed on the wall with some of my other paintings. It is painted on a 38 x 31 inches stretched canvas and is in a 1 1/2 x 1 inch light pine frame. It is also available unframed for £975.
