Big Sky Dream - a sea and sky original oil painting
A 30 x 30 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of the sea and sky. This painting is semi abstract, expressionist in style and was painted using a variety of brushes using thick rainbow colours. I tried to capture the motion of clouds over a calm ocean. A small figure can be seen standing on the shore looking at the sea. As we all know, the sea is a fabulous place to get some time and space and lots of big ideas form whilst walking along beaches. I did my art degree in Brighton and spent much of my time by the sea and never lost my fascination with the light, colours and motion of the sky over the ocean. I like this painting as the figure being very small gives the idea of a much larger space than the 30 x 30 inches it actually is. Edges are white - no frame needed

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.
Horses in a Snow Field
Rugged horses turned out in the snow. One horse is rolling whilst the other stands alert in the foreground. Their tracks form a path from a tree on the horizon through which the sunlight is streaming. Bright colours express sunlight on snow. Acrylic on canvas, the painting extends down the sides so there is no need to frame.

Frame: A 35mm luxury wide reverse shaped dark walnut (with a gold inner edge) coloured picture frame made from real ayous wood with a stain finish. Acrylic safety glazing and 55mm luxury deep-bevel single ivory mount.
Synergy of watercolour paint and digital process. During an art residency in Mexico inspired by Homero Aridjis poem I painted the famous volcano Popocatepetl with the legendry Quetzalcoatl emerging from its heart. Red sun in the west. Long fixed rays piercing the valley. Sky tensely blue. Among the volcanic peaks, the smoking crest of Popocatepetl. From its summit, loose rocks roll down, silent, without weight, like a cataclysm without sound. New Fire by Homero Aridjis
