Eye-catching Lake view study in warming pastel tones. This was inspired by a long weekend beside Lake Windermere in the Lake District. The views across the lake shortly after dawn as the sun was rising were stunning. The painting continues round the edges of the painting so it comes ready for immediate hanging with no need for framing. It has been finished with a protective satin varnish.
Something a little different to my norm.. I really enjoyed creating this small series of abstract paintings.. I have used oil paints on a black background, and merged all of the colours together as I have painted.. This canvas measures 80cm x 60cm but you could turn it the other way up if you chose! Its been strung and varnished and is ready to hang.

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.
Gentle Souls is 40x40x1.4 inches large contemporary, semi abstract, art nouveau painting with two spotted fallow deer in a woodland clearing in winter. Both deer stand on a different plane and around them are abstract trees that hint of pine trees and frosty tree branches. There is a suggestion of a hazy sun above tree line and hills in the top right. The two female deer have appeared in a strange space that hints of the heart of a forest but is overlapping in possibilities with transparent layers. The colours range from white and cream through to pale yellow, blues, violets, orange and pinks. The inspiration for the painting came having seen the herd of deer at Knole Park in Kent. I was struck by how elegant and perfect these little deer are, and simply wanted to express this. I chose a semi abstract background as it allows me freedom that contrasts with the traditional handling of the deer. Above to the right is a suggestion of a moon. I like the mystery of this painting and I am happy I have caught some of the essence of the deer who remain a constant source of fascination for me. I often see them when walking and are always amazed at how such relatively large creatures can appear and disappear with such apparent ease. It is quite magical. The painting is on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang
