The Discovery - a woodland wildflower abstract
The Discovery is a 30x40x1.5 inches semi abstract original landscape oil painting of a bluebell glade in a woodland in spring. It was inspired by April in England which is simply the best month of the year as it is when nature, birds, trees, insects and plants are going bonkers in their enthusiasm to reproduce. The painting is semi abstract in style and shows a glimpse of a pond in a a slightly hazy woodland glade. The colours are pinks, lilacs, greens and blues and look like the impression you get when you are in a bluebell wood with your glasses off - blurry and mysterious and magical. I live in Sussex which used to be one massive forest and all over it, it still had thousands of pockets of trees and woods that are ancient and varied in character. All are different in atmosphere though and this adds to their fascination. I love to walk in such places and I try to capture the thrill it gives me and pass in on via a painting. This one says what I want it to very well I think and I hope it inspires others to go walk wherever they are. Listen to birds, watch some nature, smell some flowers and see if life does not then look a whole lot better :-) White edges, deep edge canvas, ready to hang, no frame needed.

Escape to the Blue Sea - a large seascape oil painting
Escape to the Blue Sea is a 36x48x1.5 inches large original expressionist seascape painting of a beach and a blue sea with mountains beyond. The colours are blues, lilacs and white and the scene shows a small female figure standing at the edge of the white surf as a wave breaks on the beach from a calm sea. She looks out over the blue and turquoise ocean towards the low purple hills across the bay wondering whether to take the plunge or not. My aim in painting this was to limit my usually very bright colour palette to just a few colours as I wanted the scene to be relaxing and contemplative. The sky above has a few clouds scudding around which gives a slightly brooding aspect as if the calm may end soon. Perhaps that is why the lady on the beach hesitates before swimming. I think the sea speaks to all of us and I often paint seascapes in order to have bit of a reminder of that holiday feeling you get when looking out over an ocean. It is painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed.
A very unusual representation of a female nude figure apparently formed as a mosaic of coloured tiles but is in fact painted on a stretched canvas, ready to hang and set in a contemporary dark mahogany effect tray frame measuring 68cm x 48 cm overall x 35 mm deep.. It is meticulously painted with great attention paid to each individual tile. This would be an eye catching talking point in any display.
