THE RED BOATS HOME---ST IVES
This a lovely view of Whitby harbour looking over towards the Abbey on top of the cliffs with the old town nestling beneath it. I have painted it in oils on a panel. It is varnished and ready to hang if you buy it with the frame. The price includes the frame which is a 2 inch wide brown wooden frame with an inner gold line as in the photo. If you wish to buy it unframed please contact me - the price will be Â£435.
The Peacocks River
The Peacocks River is a large green oil painting (36x60x1.5 inches) of a peacock by a green river in summer. The painting is vibrantly coloured and contemporary art nouveau in style. It is a painting of two universes overlapping. The peacock sits on the left showing us his river through his universe of gold towards the muted greens and lilacâs and blues of the river and a lake in the distance. There are suggestions of flowers and roses and reeds along the river bank and light sparkles on the water. The inspiration for this painting was a walk I took along the river Ouse near Barcombe Mills in the summer of 2020. The peacock is there because I sometimes hear them when walking past the walls and gates of large country properties and they have come mean something magical and exotic and denied to me as a mere commoner so are in the realm of fairy story for me â as is this painting. The post code where I began this walk is BN8 5BP for anyone who wishes to go there! Painted on deep edge canvas, no frame needed.
Whitby Lifeboat Station
A view of Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast as the sun starts to go down creating a luminosity in everything for a brief moment of time before the light finally fades. You are looking across to the Lifeboat Station on the old side of town and the old church on the cliff top. It is painted in oils on a stretched canvas with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it could be framed if you so wish.
This is an evocative narrative of a young lady taking time to relax while reading a favourite book under the watch of the iconic Mont St Michel on the Normandy/Brittany border in the company of her beloved and iconic Citroen 2CV. The work is painted on a prepared board in a custom made frame set in turn in a contemporary white tray frame.
