Title, In passage An old fishing boat lays abandoned on the shingle beach of Dungeness in Kent. She's in passage to a point in time where she will no longer be recognisable as a boat but merely debris littering the beach and finally minute fragments between the stones. The seagull a passenger for a brief moment in the time of her journey. These boats need to be remembered .
Slow Start to the Morning
I love these old Thames Barges, they may be flat bottomed but they are so graceful in the water. This one was on a layover at Keyhaven on her way for a refurb further down the coast, so my daughter and I paddle-boarded out to take hundreds of photos. She didn't have a mast or sails so I had to find references for them elsewhere. She also had no bowsprit which I think probably means she was racing since the 1960s when they were deemed unbalancing and unsafe! She was just so beautiful that I had painted her fully refurbished and graceful in the water, so tranquil and gentle. This is an acrylic canvas, painted around the wrap, measuring 30" x 23" which really makes it a really impressive painting on the wall.
Lakeland Sunset Calm
A calming lakeland scene inspired by visits to Canada, Scotland and The Lakes. The painting continues round the edges of the frame so it is ready to hang with no need for framing. This creates a very simple but effective style. This painting has been finished with a protective satin varnish. This painting is on a standard edge canvas.
A New Summers Day
This large 36in x 36in deep edge canvas will brighten any room it hangs in. A New Summers Day is my signature painting ,but has only been painted in this size once before. Created using high quality oil paints, it has been a long time in the making due to my ill health..and could be the only one I paint for a long time. It is still drying out in places-- ie the poppies and daisies so will not be ready to post/deliver for about 3 weeks,,28th March approx. Lots of lovely textures abound in the painting. I have used a knife to create the waves--this gives a lovely textured finish, and the thick paint used to do the poppies adds more detail that stands out from the canvas.. There is a very subtle twinkle on the sea as the light catches it.. The painting continues around all of the sides and it does not require a frame.. P+P in mainland UK is included in price but personal delivery and hanging is possible, please contact me for details.
The Yacht, The Moon and The Lovers
Can you just imagine it? One of those journeys that you've both been planning for years, and after a great days sailing, you throw out the anchor to watch the sun go down and then the moon rise. A bottle of wine cooling in the ocean on a length of string and just the two of you, quiet, relaxed and in love. I adore painting the moon and love the reflections it makes on the ocean. It's an acrylic painting on canvas, painted around the wrap. It's 60cm x 80cm and looks incredibly impressive in even a big room. People say it wouldn't go in a small room but it was 'stored' on my tiny little house's wall between exhibitions and looked really great, so don't be put off by thinking it wont fit. Most artists will always understand if you really hate it on your own walls, I know I do and I would always refund the cost of the artwork if you felt it wasn't right.
