Dark Satanic Mills
Dark Satanic Mills
Whilst painting outside in the rain I added media/paint to the surface which then washed and spread and finally formed shapes which remained, these reminded me of smoke and dust and pollution rising from an Industrial factories from 1760 to the mid to late 1800s, hence the title. I added some impasto marks to represent in a semi-abstract way the factories themselves in dark compressed tight hues and dispersal with minor flecks of colour and giving a further perception of atmosphere and depth.
Hi and welcome to my quirky, funky sometimes psychedelic, abstract art, inspired by many themes and famous artists.
I am now able to sell you Framed art prints, posters, canvas art, leggings, pencils skirts, scarves and all manner of gifts, apparel direct from the Manufacturer using my original artwork and imagery, sometimes enhanced digitally. So for new products of my affordable british art drawn, painted and designed for an instant reaction, work to display, enjoy, use and even wear in all manner of ways.
and, of course original oil paintings!

... Dear Tony, the painting we purchased today at The Fishes is already hanging on the wall. It fits so nicely in the room and we absolutely love it. We also checked other paintings on your website and they are really beautiful. I especially love Abstract horizon. Thank you so much, I hope you made a few more sales today. Very best wishes, Tamara ...
Hi Tony, sorry for the late reply - the art arrived just before i was off on my hens weekend so didn't get the chance to thank you personally. We LOVE it - it's up on our wall and is perfect for our kitchen. Patrick loves it too and we both wanted to thank you for the extra's that made putting it up so much easier. Thanks again from two very happy customers. When we have our room finished i'll send a full shot so you can see it as we've deliberately ordered soft furnishings to match your art :)

24-01-2019 Update....N.B. ## unfortunately I have discovered that we have had a water seepage at my storage premises and some paintings have been affected by water marks and in some cases mold, therefore I cannot in all honesty sell them in this condition...those that may be affected will be marked as "reserved" until I get chance to see what is salvagable or not. Sorry - any sales will be fully re-imbursed. ##
So, My wife died of Cancer which knocked me for a six, we were together 32 years and a bit. Friends have been brilliant and let me deal with it my way. Art suffered, Covid did not help but I prefer isolation anyway and no fuss, not a cold fish just the opposite which can be overwhelming. They say time heals, it does not but clears the confusion on how to proceed, I contemplated doing Saacthi's mate thing and burning the lot, did not need too has most have suffered water ingress and are not saleable. However I am extremely prolific and conservatively have more than enough to fill house bedrooms,., garages, statics, sheds and a van. I'm in the slow process of destroying an extrenal shed Stuidio some 20 x 10 foot at the top of the garden - it will be gone in summer.
My new Studio is my old static caravan which I have gutted to provide space,,,,costs the same each tear so it will be used.
I have new hope, I have experience, we all know what happened in 2008 and what is threatened now, painting by candle may become a new thing.
Sorry if I'vebeen too quiet and inactive on social media etc - not my usual ebullient., optomistic, slightly annoying self.
The love of art since childhood is still an anchor for me. Watch this space. Love Tony
P.S. wish me luck with my planned Brain Operation in May so that I can eventually get my Hip operation which was cancelled in February done, fingers crossed this year, give me some time I will start exhibiting again.
p.p.s Seen some old style work of mine you would fancy having new - just email me and let us see if we can work something out - back to work again, at last. TB
