Watchers in the Ice Forest - misty landscape with deer
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of deer at dawn in a misty forest. A long row of deer stand across a river looking at us out of the trees. It is semi abstract and slight art nouveau in style and is painted in autumn winter dawn colours of peach, yellow's, white and violet grey. The sun glows through the mist low above the forest tree line. It is icy with frost and early morning thaw makes a mist. The deer know something we don't so they simply wait and watch us. Inspired by a morning walk in the Ashdown forest in autumn. Shiny finish, deep edge canvas, edges white, frame not needed.
Little Robin Red Breast
This is an open edition laser print of an original naive painting which was inspired by a short surreal verse written by myself as follows: Little Robin Red Breast sitting on a treasure chest. The donkeys came along singing a jolly song and the crabs were knitting a vest. It is in a 1 1/2 inch cream mount which will fit in a 14x11 inch frame. If you would like it unmounted or framed please contact me, also if you are interested in a gift voucher/certificate.
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.
Revelation - a path through an autumn wood
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a path through an autumn wood. Three female deer and one stag watch from the right as the light beckons though the trees. It promises a discovery of some kind. The style is slightly art nouveau, semi abstract and is painted to give a blurred out of focus effect. This path through a forest is a persistent theme for me as I walk often in woodland like this. And when I do, I am forever feeling like I will discover something magical just around the next bend. The trees whisper it, the sunlight hints at it, the deer lead to it. Maybe one day I will find it (whatever it is!)
A surreal image that emerged organically from the process of blending watercolours and pencils with random shapes. The overall mood of the image is 'expectant'.

This is an open edition laser print of an original naive painting done in mixed media which was inspired by a surreal verse written by myself as follows: Cheetah, Cheetah couldn't eat her as the ducks went swimming. She sprouted wings and had a fling and then began to fly. It is in a 2 inch wide cream mount which fits in a 14x12 inch frame. If you would like it unmounted or framed please contact me, also if you are interested in a gift voucher/certificate.
