Echos of Empire
Night Magicians is a large oil painting on canvas of three white barn owls flying across a lilac and orange twilight sky. It is contemporary art nouveau in style which you can see from the stylised shapes of the twigs and branches of the delicate white tree tops. Each of the owls (associated with the Goddess Athena by the way) is looking a different direction as if they are about to go their separate ways. Owls donât really flock together so maybe they are. Owls are elegant beautiful birds and are all the more mysterious from being so quiet and hard to spot during the day time. This idea alone was enough for me to want to paint this. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, wide edge canvas, ready to hang, no frame needed.
The Old Mill, Colton.
A picturesque view of the old mill at Colton near Leeds when it was a crumbling neglected ruin before it was refurbished. This small painting is the first version of the larger painting that is on show in my gallery which I feel turned out rather well considering the speed at which it was painted. It is painted on a stretched canvas with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it could be framed if you so wish.
MY GALLERY IS NOW CLOSED UNTIL 21st MAY 2021. A popular view of Scarborough showing the lighthouse and beach with some people enjoying the sun and some donkeys waiting to take children for rides. It is painted in oils on a 12 x 9 x 1/2 inch canvas and has a coat of varnish. It can hung as it is or you can frame it if you wish.
Leopard On The Rocks
This was my first lockdown painting which was created in a very confined space, but was well worth the effort in recreating the calculating look from this elegant and powerful animal. Interpreted from a wonderful photo, this exposes her beautiful, detailed markings as she chills on the rocks in the shade from the sun. Painted in oils on boxed canvas so no need to frame.
This is an evocative narrative of a young lady taking time to relax while reading a favourite book under the watch of the iconic Mont St Michel on the Normandy/Brittany border in the company of her beloved and iconic Citroen 2CV. The work is painted on a prepared board in a custom made frame set in turn in a contemporary white tray frame.
