Everyday Magic - a semi abstract forest landscape with birds

Title: Everyday Magic - a semi abstract forest landscape with birds
Description: 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a semi abstract forest with two bullfinches. The style is slightly art nouveau (organic forms in a pattern) and the colours range from purple, amethyst, magenta, orange and rose red through to Indian yellow and gold. The background trees and light through the forest is deliberately blurred to make it look out of focus whilst in the foreground two red bullfinches are in sharp focus as a contrast to the background. I often walk in Sussex woodland and often see these birds. I find the little flashes of colour and beautiful song quite magical. I wonder what magic they are creating when there are no humans around to notice it. This is another in a series of paintings I have been working on that are portals to another place. I like that it can be on a wall and provide an exit when you need to get away for while. It is on deep edge canvas, white edges, frame not necessary.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.


I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90’s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.



I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.



My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.



I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.



My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same – even if only for a little while.
