The Golden Bough
The Golden Bough is a 30x30x1.5 inches contemporary oil painting of an oak tree and a deer in an autumn forest clearing. The painting was created by weaving and layering lots of paint layers in a semi abstract art nouveau style using pale yellows, orange, violets and pinks which give an intriguing glimpse into the heart of a forest. A female deer stands guarding her tree which is an ancient oak matriarch of the forest. The Oak, who has golden leaves, knows exactly what is going on in her wood and has tracked every movement by man and beast over centuries. The painting was inspired by the fact that oak trees and deer do, in fact, have a mystery to them. You always wonder what they would tell you if they would talk. I like the idea of worlds beyond the mundane and have used veils of paint to hint at possible mysteries or fairy tales being revealed. I painted it at this time (Sept 2019) as it is the end of summer and beginning of autumn and it is a palpable change in nature that prompts walks in forests and musings about the stories they could tell :-) Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang.

The Back Road
A view up the back road. One of the few in the city that has not succumbed to being covered in tarmac as yet. It is painted in oils in a loose impressionistic manner on a box canvas measuring 8 x 8 x 1.5 inches with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it can be framed if you so desire.
Oranges with Venetian Glass
This is a very detailed work including oranges in a highly reflective bowl alongside a venetian glass containing wine. The work is set in a contemporary white tray frame measuring 49cm x 48cm overall x 35mm deep. This work in fact sold about 30 mins ago but I am happy to produce another similar painting as I still have all of my original preparatory sketches etc. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested.
