This is a lovely view of Whitby harbour looking over towards the Abbey on top of the cliffs with the old town nestling beneath it. I have painted it in oils on a canvas panel. It is varnished and ready to hang if you buy it with the frame. The price includes the frame which is a 2" wide brown wooden frame with an inner gold line as illustrated in the photograph. If you wish to buy it unframed please contact me and if you are interested in purchasing a gift voucher.
Scene from my Garden
Gentle Souls is 40x40x1.4 inches large contemporary, semi abstract, art nouveau painting with two spotted fallow deer in a woodland clearing in winter. Both deer stand on a different plane and around them are abstract trees that hint of pine trees and frosty tree branches. There is a suggestion of a hazy sun above tree line and hills in the top right. The two female deer have appeared in a strange space that hints of the heart of a forest but is overlapping in possibilities with transparent layers. The colours range from white and cream through to pale yellow, blues, violets, orange and pinks. The inspiration for the painting came having seen the herd of deer at Knole Park in Kent. I was struck by how elegant and perfect these little deer are, and simply wanted to express this. I chose a semi abstract background as it allows me freedom that contrasts with the traditional handling of the deer. Above to the right is a suggestion of a moon. I like the mystery of this painting and I am happy I have caught some of the essence of the deer who remain a constant source of fascination for me. I often see them when walking and are always amazed at how such relatively large creatures can appear and disappear with such apparent ease. It is quite magical. The painting is on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang

This is a portrait of border collie Danny. He is a working sheepdog on a Pennine hill farm. This is painted on a standard stretched canvas based on a number of photographs which I took at his home and in his natural environment. The work is framed in a simple contemporary tray frame measuring 68cm x 53cm x 35mm overall. I am happy to undertake similar works on a commission basis. Please contact me for details.
