Mandolin, Appearing To Disappear.
SUNFLOWERS IN BLUE VASE
This is a very detailed and realistic painting of sunflowers - a taste of the warmth of the south of France in the home. Meticulously painted to make the viewer feel almost able to reach out and touch the petals and leaves. It is set in a light coloured contemporary tray frame measuring 68cm x 68cm x 35mm overall.
ST IVES--A DAYS WORK DONE
Boats at Buttermere, Lake District
A beautiful view of Lake Buttermere in the Lake District, Cumbria, England with two small rowing boats moored up at the side of the lake. It is painted in oils on a 12x9x1/2 inch canvas painted on all sides so does not need framing though you could have it framed if you wished. It is varnished and can be hung from the canvas.
The Rock Collector
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
Afloat in the sun
Fishing Boats at Staithes
The beautiful small picturesque fishing village of Staithes on the east coast of Yorkshire, England with some fishing boats moored up when the tide is in. Painted in oils on a canvas panel and framed in a 20x14x2 inch brown frame with a gold inner line. If you would like it unframed please contact me - the price would be Â£220. There is some reflection on the main photograph due to it being varnished.
