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.

The Owls Wood
The Owls Wood is 30x30x1.5 inches oil painting on canvas in contemporary art nouveau style of a white owl in an autumn wood. The painting shows a view along an autumn path through rows of trees vanishing in the distance. Autumn colours of greens, yellows, reds and oranges can be seen through white branches and the owl floats behind them in stealth mode as owls do. She is silent and deadly and beautiful and she owns this little forest. The paint is thick and luxurious and is reminiscent of stained glass. The painting started life as a more traditional autumn forest path painting but needed something extra so I added more as I like layers and the idea of things being hidden and then revealed. The painting is dedicated to owl lovers and anyone helping to keep our English forests ancient and beautiful and safe for their wildlife. It was inspired simply by how happy walks in Sussex landscapes make me and my quest to actually see a white barn owl in one of my walks which I am yet to do.
