Equine Dreaming - large abstract oil painting in red and black with tw
Equine Dreaming is 44x54 inches large, framed red painting of two black Arabian horses, abstract style, in a poppy field. This painting was originally painted to show me as a little girl in a poppy field dreaming of the two horses I would one day own. Unfortunately I grew up allergic to horses so this never happened. Instead, I painted them. Recently I made the painting more abstract and added a red background. You can still see a suggestion of poppies and green fields, hills and trees beyond the two back horses and you can still see a little girl in a yellow dress picking poppies and dreaming of horses. I chose red simply because it works well with black and is the complement to green which was the original background colour. The painting is framed in a metallic burnished copper and silver frame, two inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. The shine works beautifully with the shine of the two horses and the radiant red background

A Piece of Magic - a pink abstract painting with birds and wildflowers
A Piece of Magic is a 30x40x1.5 inches original oil painting of two nuthatch birds in the corner of a wildflower field at dawn. It is art nouveau, semi abstract, and part traditional in style and was inspired by me spotting one of these little birds on a tree trunk for the first time recently. They are small and elusive and very endearing little birds but quite hard to see as they are so small. The background of this painting is pink, lilac, light blue, golden yellow and white and is my attempt to hint at sun through a tangle of meadow of flowers in May at dawn. I observe what I see around me as I walk through the landscape but do not try to capture botanical accuracy. Instead I paint the impression formed on my memory from something I have seen and want to share. For this reason the birds are painted fairly realistically but their little corner of a field is only hinted at as it easier for me to show the feeling of it this way. Paintings are little worlds presented by artists to show what they find beautiful or ugly about the world. I prefer to concentrate on the beauty of this world rather than the ugly and I love how nature is permanently performing beautiful little scenarios like this, available to anyone who makes the effort to go and look. This painting is on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang.
Campo San Bartolomeo. Venice.
After leaving the boat that brings you into Venice from the airport at the Rialto bridge, Campo San Bartolomeo with the statue of the Venetian playwright Goldoni is one of the first squares that you come to. It is painted in oils on a canvas panel and is ready for you to frame to your tastes.
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.
