This is a commissioned painting of a retired foxhound - now a family pet. It is painted on a standard stretched canvas and presented in a contemporary simple tray frame measuring 68cm x 53cm x 35mm overall. It was painted from a photograph supplied by his owner.

EMERGING large oil on canvas deer in autumn forest painting
Emerging is a large oil on canvas deer in autumn forest painting 40x4x1.5 inches with a stag and doe in an autumn forest in art nouveau, impasto, semi abstract style. A large deer stag stands on the left in the foreground looking imperiously at us as stags do, and a doe stands behind him ready to run. Behind them is a forest of pine and birch trees with thick white light hinted at coming through the trees which halo around the deer To the right is the edge of a forest that is morphing into a curtain. I love the idea of stepping out of forests into other worlds entirely and feel that may be what is happening here. I have deliberately left it ambiguous as to what is occurring and I have abstracted the painting by being very detailed in some parts of it and leaving it alone other parts. This better inspires the imagination. As a child I loved (and still do) fairy stories. There is one here I thinkâ¦ Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame necessary.

A New Summers Day
This large 36in x 36in deep edge canvas will brighten any room it hangs in. A New Summers Day is my signature painting ,but has only been painted in this size once before. Created using high quality oil paints, it has been a long time in the making due to my ill health..and could be the only one I paint for a long time. Lots of lovely textures abound in the painting. I have used a knife to create the waves--this gives a lovely textured finish, and the thick paint used to do the poppies adds more detail that stands out from the canvas.. There is a very subtle twinkle on the sea as the light catches it.. The painting continues around all of the sides and it does not require a frame.. P+P in mainland UK is included in price but personal delivery and hanging is possible, please contact me for details. NOW SOLD
