Approaching Macclesfield from the South
A small painting of a barge approaching Macclesfield from the south along the canal. I liked the way the early afternoon light filtered through the trees and lit up the water and the mix of wonderful autumnal colours. (Acrylic on canvas). This artwork is sold but if you would like to commission a similar painting please contact me.
Abstract artwork on standard edge box canvas. This is done via a pouring acrylics method, and is varnished ready to hang. The edges match the front and it can be framed or hung as it is. This work is 6 inches high by 6 inches wide as displayed but can be hung in any direction. Varnished and ready to hang. It matches artwork A97, made from the same paint batch. Postage to mainland UK is included, postage abroad can be quoted for on request. commissions I accept commissions for these pouring acrylics, you choose size and colours from 3 to 8, and I'll do two paintings, you choose which you want. Its an unpredictable way of painting so results are very variable. If you want a bias of one or two colours, or mainly cells or stripes/bands of colour, I'll do my best but can't be precise. I don't want anyone buying an artwork they're not happy with, so though I ask for a non-refundable deposit of 25% final purchase price towards costs of materials, I won't hold you to buying if you really don't like either of the final results, but I'm certain that just won't happen. Cost depends on size, for example 8 x 10 inch paintings are all £28 inc P&P, 6 x 16 inches at £38 , 8 x 20 inches at £52, and square at 20 x 20 inches at£84. I can do other sizes on request. P&P to mainland UK included in price. Delivery by myhermes courier service. Postage abroad can be quoted for on request.

CHINA TOWN LANTERN
This painting illustrates the image of LANTERNS in china town coupling with some dark abstract iron gate on the background. The most common Chinese lanterns are red, oval shaped, and decorated with red or golden tassels. Typically, they come in many different shapes including square, rectangle, and spherical. In ancient China, they were used to provide light and eventually as aspects of Buddhist worship. Today, they are used only for decoration and modern forms of celebration and worship. Lanterns have become a symbol of national pride in China and are used to decorate homes and public places. The Chinese Lantern Festival takes place on the 15th day of the first lunar month in the Chinese New Year. Lanterns hung at Chinese New Year are thought to scare aware the Nian monster (a Nian is a beast that lives under the sea or in the mountains) and bring good luck.
