Echo With Movement
I have had great fun creating some colourful abstract paintings lately.. As I have become more disabled it has been harder for me to continue to use brushes like before.. this new technique to me enables me to use colour without them... This artwork is 2 canvas each 8in square..I have chosen to hang them as shown,hanging in a diamond shape the red paint from the top one appears to be continuing down onto the the canvas hanging below to one size .. There is so much to see when you study them..far more detail than can be seen in these photos.. The paintings continues around all sides, and they have been varnished to protect them... I have not strung these canvas , as there are so many different ways they can be hung.. They will sit happily on a small tack placed in the wall.
I am enjoying doing some different art lately...after becoming a lot more disabled of late I am discovering new techniques of creating art.. ''Bizarre'' is very colourful, with lots going on in there! Lots of 'cells' of colour abound-- I have included 2 close up details.. The canvas could be hung any way you choose-its very much personal choice,. 25% of all sales will be donated to the O'Connor Haematology/Cancer Unit , Royal Shrewsbury Hospital where my son has been treated. now sold
Spirits of Winter
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large contemporary landscape painting of two deer in a snowy birch tree forest. It is painted in semi abstract, art nouveau style with realistic deer contrasting against the abstract landscape. The trees are loosely based on aspen or birch trees and the perspective is arranged to make the deer look as if they both have their own path into the woods. They are arranged almost as a mirror image of each-other because to me that looks balanced. The paint is very thick in places and patterns can be seen forming in the snow if you look closely at it. It was inspired by a trip the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey where there are herds of of roe and red deer including a white stag. I always find deer enchanting and ethereal and in winter they are even more so as they can be spotted more easily than usual against the pristine white snow. However they can still vanish in the blink of an eye and mange to retain their mystery. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed.

original oil painting - Making it Real
30 x 40 x 1.5 inches semi abstract landscape on canvas of a desire being made real. This is an unusual painting for me in that it took a few years to complete. It was inspired by a desire I have to live in Switzerland - a beautiful country as I found out when I was 20. I fondly recall sitting on the side of a mountain in Interlaken in a field of wild flowers and buttercups and looking down on a glittering blue lake with an ancient wooden church below me and cow bells tinkling beside a waterfall. It was a complete Sound of Music moment and I have not forgotten it. This painting is my attempt to make it real. It is painted in thick textured paint and is multi layered. The purple and green dark colours of the canvas represents the view through dark pine trees that obscures most of the landscape but allows tantalizing glimpses of a lake, mountains, forests, a church and the wildflowers. There are several little cameos showing different aspects of the scene, each one of which goes from fairly realistic to just abstract spots and lines towards the edge of the canvas. The red lines are branches but also look like veins and the dark patches are acting as barriers to the perfect vista as they emotional as well as physical. In summary this is a painting about wanting something and trying to make it real through intention and by simply continuing to create it until it begins to happen. This is how anything is achieved isn't it?...
Sardine and Lemon
This is an original acrylic on canvas of an abstract sardine and half a lemon ready to be cooked. The sides of the canvas are painted so this can be hung unframed but I think it would look better in a frame. It is an ideal painting for a kitchen or dining room. A silk protective varnish spray has been applied to protect the paint.
