Out of the Ether
Out of the Ether is a painting of a white egret in flight below a full moon seen through a screen of purple. It is 30x30x1.5 inches. The white egret is a beautiful ethereal bird and is seen here flying over a lake at sunset. Above her is a soft full moon and both she and the moon are reflected in the misty lake beneath her which may have a layer of ice on it. The colours are sunset colours â gold, orange, magenta and purple and a purple glaze has been applied over it. Some was then wiped away to reveal parts of the painting so that you get the impression of it not being quite of this world â hence the title. In the foreground are some spindly twigs and trees which are reminiscent of a winter landscape. The inspiration for this painting was the many winter walks I have taken in Sussex woodland and around areas of ancient millponds where I often see storks and egrets. I find them magical birds and wonder how they manage to stay so white in a muddy English pond. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed.

Somewhere Waiting is a large semi abstract square oil painting of a mythical landscape with deer (40x40x1.5 inches). The stag and three female deer, stand at the centre of the painting and there is a hint of a waterfall below them and trees and mountains above and around them. The deer are small and well defined though slightly nebulous at the same time. I often use this same little posse of deer in my paintings as they seem perfect together. Below the deer, if you look closely, you can see the outline of a much bigger stag who was painted over and has now become part of the waterfall. The painting began with a simple desire to use the colours in it which include magenta, rose, purple, lilac, pale blue, white and golden yellow. The painting worked well as an abstract landscape but I feel it is better with the little deer adding some focus to it. Most of my paintings have a story or memory attached. This one is about the spiritual nature of deer and the idea that maybe they can move between worlds and can act as guides. This idea is common to many cultures and I like it. This painting is on 3D, deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hang, frame not needed.
Seven Stags Appearing
Seven Stags Appearing is a very large oil painting of seven ethereal fallow deer stags in a bluebell forest. It is 36x60x1.5 inches on deep edge canvas and is ready to hang. The painting zooms the viewer into a springtime bluebell wood from dark blue edges into a clearing where seven stags are materializing. The stags appear and disappear fast in British woodland as do bluebells. In fact, spring is over way too fast and thus has a fairy tale feeling about it. As a keen walker I am poised every year for the first bluebells and when not actually trawling around in woodland can be found painting my memories of the woodland I have been trawling around in. This particular woodland was inspired by the many pockets of woodland around the Cowden area and the fallow deer I see at the same time (park near the church and head in any direction! TN8 7JE). The stags themselves are a magic number seven and one of them is white. The bluebell flowers are not botanical studies but the colours themselves suggest them as I am fond of things that are not abstract and not too traditional either. This painting says what I wanted to say about the transient nature of spring in an English woodland and the magic that is there if you care to look for itâ¦
