White Winter Monarchs
White Winter Monarchs is a 40x40x1.5 inches large white original oil painting with deer and an owl in a snow covered winter forest. A big red deer stag stands to the left next to a pine tree and behind him is a doe. Over to the right flying between the trees is a white barn owl. The scene is set in a woodland clearing where thick snow lies on the ground leading though a patch of tall thin pine and birch trees. There is an exit in the middle of the painting that the creatures can lead you to or turn you away from. Both deer and owls are often found in folklore and are often credited with being spiritual guides or purveyors of wisdom. I am not sure of the truth of this but they are nevertheless beautiful creatures and do add something spiritual to landscapes. This painting is semi abstract and contemporary in style and began its life as an autumn landscape with deer. Now, however, it is a winter one as I wanted to mute down the oranges of autumn to make a white painting. Painted on wide edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang.
Big toe in
April Echoes is a large green woodland contemporary landscape oil painting of a distant lake seen through the trees of a woodland path. The painting is mostly made up of shades of bright green ranging from yellow greens through to dark viridians, purples and blues. The saplings and trees are dressed in the bright vibrant greens of springtime in England. This painting was inspired by a walk I took around Ardingly reservoir in Sussex. Woodland paths are a very constant source of inspiration for me as you never know where they will lead and what is across the next field, through the next wood and over the next style. It is exciting and you often come across deer, birds and other woodland creatures which adds to experience. This painting was made by blurring the edges of it to look out of focus whilst making the paint thicker and thicker towards the centre. The white of the glimpse of the lake is thickest of all which gives a 3D feeling of walking the path thought the trees and past the foxgloves and other woodland flowers. I dedicate this to everyone who is waiting for the grey winter to give way to spring again. Painted on 3D canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed.
Assembling Horse is a large original equine oil painting (47x32x0.5 inches) of an art nouveau, semi abstract, golden purple horse assembling out of nothing. The inspiration for this painting was simply that I find horses very beautiful and I sometimes just need to indulge in painting one just to feel happy. This horse is being created out of golden particles assembling out of the ether. I like this idea as all life forms are basically assembled from smaller particles so all I am doing here is showing the process in a more fanciful way. The horse is painted realistically around the eye and parts of its face in contrast to other parts of her which are partially formed, transparent or decorated for no particular reason other than it looks pleasing to me. The colours range through dark blue, purples, lilacs, golds and pinks and is thin and transparent in places and thick in others which further add to the idea of the horse in the process of appearing. I am a great fan of the artist Gustav Klimt and this possibly shows in this painting as he too liked to contrast realistic with abstract and decorativeness in the way that I am doing here. It is painted on thin canvas, edges white, ready to hang.
