Bluebell Symphony - a very large oil painting of a Spring Woodland
Bluebell symphony is very large original oil painting on canvas (48x48 inches) of a Spring woodland painted in a semi abstract, impressionist style. As it is a large painting, it gives the viewer the feeling that they can walk into this golden Spring wood with its bluebells and wildflowers and green trees and follow the sunlight path out to the fields beyond. A glowing yellow stag can be seen near the path looking at us imperiously as stags do. He is a guide to somewhere wonderful but is assessing our intentions before he leads us forward. In the foreground to the left is a large tree which sets the perspective for the rest of the painting. The bluebell flowers and leaves are painted in a semi abstract style which by their colours and positions hint at what they are but in an ambiguous way. This is because when I painted this it was from memory and I remember impressions and colours and motions but not details. I like it this way as it gives a transient feel which is what I wanted to capture here as that is what bluebell season is. For many people it is their favourite season (including mine) and I am happy to have painted a place where I can escape to a Spring woodland among the trees and flowers whenever I have had enough of an English winter... It is 1.5 inches think, edges white, frame not necessary, ready to hang.
Sandstorm is one of my abstract swirl paintings which was inspired by a landscape. It suggested a sandstorm to me on completion, hence the title. It is painted in oils on all sides of a stretched canvas so can be hung without a frame. It can be framed if desired. Please contact me if you are interested in a gift voucher/certificate.
Bloodstream is one of my abstract swirl paintings in red which was inspired from a landscape. On completion I thought it resembled blood flowing through a vein, hence the title. It is painted in oils on a stretched canvas which covers all the sides so can be hung without a frame. Please contact me if you are interested in a gift voucher/certificate.
October Glows - an autumn wood abstract painting
A 30x30 woodland path abstract landscape painting in rainbow colours. This painting was painted after a walk I took near Glyndebourne in East Sussex. It was a beautiful clear autumn day and the path was lined with trees glowing yellow, red, purple and green in the low autumn sun. This path led up to a steeper path that eventually goes to the top of the South Downs. I tried to capture my impression of the place in an abstract, possibly expressionist style using very thick wet oil paint and I worked into (wet into wet) over the course of two days. I wanted to capture the low angle of the sun and the impression of the light through the leaves picking out glimpses of ivy on the ancient trees, ferns and leaves in autumn golds and greens. I was very pleased with the result as it gives a satisfying flavour of the scene and how I felt being there rather than trying to be traditionally realistic. I love paths such as these as I always imagine something fantastic being about to be discovered just around the corner. Sometimes I am rewarded with a glimpse of a deer or fox but usually a view through trees to another world keeps me very happy.

Painting is signed on the back Titanic (my past life) A few hours ago dancing and singing a ditty, music and laughter all Irish and pretty; seems far off now as I run for my life, corridors are flooded, panic is rife. I was in third class, Iâm just not priority, thereâre not enough lifeboats to seat the majority: thereâs shouting and panic as the ship starts to sink; Iâm cold and afraid as it tips in the drink; the lights all go out, I hang onto life and cry, Iâm only 33, I donât wanna die; then Iâm plunged into the waters icy depths, underwater now, I hold my breath, hanging on for dear life I surface again: a sea full of people, freezing, in pain; the lifeboats move away, they care not for our health, theyâre ok Jack, itâs every man for himself; eerie and silent, the cold cuts like a knife as we gradually lose the battle to hold onto our life, âwill I be remembered,â as I take my last breath, and slowly I sink into the waters icy cold depths.
Sid The Squid
I have used melted wax to create this little picture... Sid The Squid is a little different to my usual paintings.it could not be repeated no matter how many times you tried.. There is another painting in the series called Olly the Octopus which is also available here on ABA ..if you would like to purchase both paintings I will sell the two together for £55 It comes in a black mount ready to frame for your room.. and measures 20cm x 15cm mounted. Encaustic wax is a unique way of creating completely different paintings-- it is not 100% controllable -which makes it very interesting to work with.. I use an electric iron to melt the wax and 'paint' the picture using the iron. and love the unpredictable nature of it.
