A Place in the Sun
This is an evocative piece showing two young ladies on tour in their iconic Citroen 2CV with the even more iconic Mont St Michel as a backdrop. They have broken their journey while one of the friends enjoys the sunshine while the other contemplates who knows what? This piece is set in a contemporary tray frame, either white or brushed cream - the choice is yours - which measures 68cm x 48cm overall x 35mm deep.
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.
Glimpse of April
Glimpse of April is a semi abstract oil painting inspired by spring blossom and deer. The inspiration behind it was simply to try and capture that brief moment in April in England when the pink blossom trees bloom. I had been walking around the Knole Park area of Sevenoaks in Kent where a large herd of fallow deer live in the grounds of a stately home. One young deer stood under a blossom tree and flashed her white bottom at me before disappearing into the woods. I liked the fairy tale quality of it and although the painting is a little experimental it does give me a glimpse of that moment â hence the title. It is 30x30x1.5 inches on deep edge canvas (so frame not needed), edges white.

Over the Shoulder
A peaceful scene
Stormy Poppies lll
A storm aproaching,the skies and sea are grey. The grasses and poppies are starting to blow in the wind.. The waves are gathering pace and stand out from the canvas as do the poppies. I have used high quality canvas and oil paints to create this scene which is based on some memories from holidays in Wales.. It comes ready to hang although I have left the edges of the painting white. Delivery on Mainland UK is free
