Ambiguous A lot to look at, what do you see? How do you feel when you look at me? Open to more than one interpretation, not having obvious meaning; can I fit into your way of life and evoke some happy feeling? Pleasing colours, textures and shapes, would I look good in the lounge and compliment the drapes? I might look good in your office or to help you meditate; or even in your dining room; look at me as you clear your plate. I may be ambiguous, but put me somewhere conspicuous! What was in the artistâs head when she created me? Now Iâll tell you what she saw; I wonder if itâs what you see? A personality has lots of layers, thatâs what I represent, now you know what Iâm all about, thatâs what my creator meant! Look closely and you will see, layers beneath my transparency!
Woodland Portal is 40x40x1.5 inches oil on canvas square painting of a woodland glade with wild flowers and blue tits set against light through the trees. It is semi abstract in style and the paint is thickly applied and in very vibrant colours. It was inspired by the happiness I feel at springtime in Sussex and particularly the feeling you get in a wood when you are just about to leave it and find some new and interesting landscapes. The blue tits are there because you often see them in English woodland and forests and they are very pretty little birds. I called it woodland portal as when I enter a path into a woodland or forest I sometimes wonder if I will come out somewhere else entirely elsewhere to the area I went in. I always loved the idea of doors into other realms and universes and this is a common source of inspiration for me. This painting leads you to where you want to go and the birds are the ones who know how to get there. Painted on deep edge canvas, ready to hang, no frame needed.

Blue Tit on Ivy Leaves
An adorable little blue tit perched on trailing ivy leaves. My thanks to Albert Horsborough for kind permission to use his wonderful reference photo. The blue tit (cyanistes caeruleus) is a much-loved garden and woodland bird, widespread in the UK and much of Europe, entertaining us with its agility at our back yard bird feeders. Like the chickadee, it is part of the paridae family. Derwent Lightfast and Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat board with Pan Pastel background.
