30x40x1.5 inches red forest calls is a red oil painting made in a variety of rich reds, crimson, scarlet, yellow and purple. It is painted in art nouveau slightly abstract style and shows a red deer stag deep in a red forest while above and behind him some female deer call to him from the edge of the trees. There is a tentative message in this - females being the voice of reason when males get riled up maybe? but mostly it was painted because I love deer, I love red and I love deep dark forests. It is painted on deep edge canvas and the edges are also red. Framing not necessary.
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.
Three beautiful and vibrant orange poppies set on a delicate green background. Pollock style background to draw the eye around the whole painting. Three was considered the number of understanding harmony, and wisdom (the power of three). 3rd time lucky is also a saying. A piece of artwork to bring you that luck.

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.

THE DRYADS BLUEBELL WOOD
A 30x40 inches original oil painting of an abstract woodland landscape in Spring with bluebells and a dryad. This painting is art nouveau and semi abstract and it shows a dryad (tree spirit) emerging from her tree so that she can attend to bluebells in her woodland garden. The colours range from deep purple through to cool blues, greens, magenta and golden yellow. I have used golden yellow in to give the idea of light glinting off of the trees and flowers in small beams of light. My aim was to catch a bit of the essence of the colours and light through trees that you get in a Spring woodland and to show the colours and exuberance of a bluebell wood but as an impression rather than making a botanical study. The dryad was added in later because I rarely paint people so thought I would make an exception. I spend alot of time walking in woods and forests around Kent and Sussex and I am fascinated by the atmosphere you get in them. Some woodland is welcoming, some can be sinister and I always feel as if I being observed so why not by dryads as well as the birds and foxes and wildlife?... Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed.
