Soul of Summer
Soul of Summer is a large semi abstract oil painting of a white deer stag in a summer meadow full of wildflowers. The stag is slightly transparent as if he is just materialising. In front of him are vibrantly coloured wild flowers seen against a row of green trees. Towards the back of the field is the suggestion of another field beyond which is in full sunlight. I like the idea that certain places can have spirits protecting them and as I walk about in England I often feel the atmospheres of different places and it intrigues me. The white hart in this painting is loosely based on deer I have seen in and around the Ashdown Forest. I nearly always see deer when I walk and I am always very happy about it. This painting is 40x40x1.5 inches with white edges. No frame needed.

Glimpse of April
Glimpse of April is a semi abstract oil painting inspired by spring blossom and deer. The inspiration behind it was simply to try and capture that brief moment in April in England when the pink blossom trees bloom. I had been walking around the Knole Park area of Sevenoaks in Kent where a large herd of fallow deer live in the grounds of a stately home. One young deer stood under a blossom tree and flashed her white bottom at me before disappearing into the woods. I liked the fairy tale quality of it and although the painting is a little experimental it does give me a glimpse of that moment â hence the title. It is 30x30x1.5 inches on deep edge canvas (so frame not needed), edges white.
