Storm Clearing near Shining Tor
Creation is a large 48x48x1.5 inches painting of the view through trees to a Sussex summer meadow with flowers and swallows. The style is art nouveau and contemporary and the colours are extremely bright and vibrant. The impression the painting gives is of a voyeuristic glimpse of a late summer meadow with an abundance of wild flowers in the foreground and the hint of wheat and grasses in the meadow behind. Two swallows swoop down from the left throwing transparent veils over the scene in a slightly spiral pattern as if they are creating the landscape or revealing it. In the far distance you can see a river on the horizon and an exit into the next field beyond. This painting was very much inspired by the river Rother near Burwash in Sussex in summer 2020 where I thrashed my way through tall grasses and flowers to watch the swallows gathering in the air around me ready to leave for Africa. It is always a slightly melancholy time as it means end of summer so I felt the urge to pay tribute to a lovely English landscape (yes despite a pandemic) and am satisfied I have caught a little of the energy and beauty that birds, flowers and nature bring to this world. The edges are dark green, no frame needed, ready to hang. If you want to find this place, go to the Bear Inn in Burwash and head north towards Stonegate

Windmills of my mind
This is a panoramic (length 26.5 x width 9 inches) original impressionist watercolour painting of 5 windmills silhouetted against the sky adjacent to a dutch dyke (a great deal of Holland is below sea level). The scene is painted from a photograph taken at dawn as the sky lights up above the mist rising over the still water in the dyke. This painting will be supplied with a bevelled mount and a glazed black frame.
