Sakura (cherry) blossom
The painting was inspired by Sakura blossom in Japan. The futuristic elements of the painting allows the viewer to use their own imagination to see the elements rising. It expresses the beauty through flower blossom, the freedom through birds, the strength through the tree, the home through the house, universe through clouds and grounds through mountains. It was painted using canvas, ready to be hang on wall using acrylic painting.
Bluebell Symphony - a very large oil painting of a Spring Woodland
Bluebell symphony is very large original oil painting on canvas (48x48 inches) of a Spring woodland painted in a semi abstract, impressionist style. As it is a large painting, it gives the viewer the feeling that they can walk into this golden Spring wood with its bluebells and wildflowers and green trees and follow the sunlight path out to the fields beyond. A glowing yellow stag can be seen near the path looking at us imperiously as stags do. He is a guide to somewhere wonderful but is assessing our intentions before he leads us forward. In the foreground to the left is a large tree which sets the perspective for the rest of the painting. The bluebell flowers and leaves are painted in a semi abstract style which by their colours and positions hint at what they are but in an ambiguous way. This is because when I painted this it was from memory and I remember impressions and colours and motions but not details. I like it this way as it gives a transient feel which is what I wanted to capture here as that is what bluebell season is. For many people it is their favourite season (including mine) and I am happy to have painted a place where I can escape to a Spring woodland among the trees and flowers whenever I have had enough of an English winter... It is 1.5 inches think, edges white, frame not necessary, ready to hang.

Butterflies, Bugs and Bees
This ones a real puzzle, can you spot three red admiral butterflies, three dorset blues and three peacock butterflies, along with four bumble bees and seven ladybirds. All the flowers and insects in the painting are listed on the back, all colour coded for fun - you'll have hours of frustration - sorry no - I mean fun searching for them all. I'm an illustrator by heart and I just love to add in all the little details, each of the lady birds have a tiny black head and two tiny black spots, the bees each have three bands! I use a small brush which I've plucked even smaller, it has about three hairs left, just enough to hold a minute amount of paint by osmosis! My eyesight is rubbish after this but I just love doing them.
