CAN I HAVE AN ICE GREAM DAD
Song of August
Song of August is very large oil painting 72x48x2 inches of a magical summer landscape with birds and flowers by a lake. It has a real impact when seen from a distance as it is the sort of painting you feel you can walk into. The edges are built up of layers of greens, purples and blues like overlapping leaves and foliage and through these leaves you can see a glittering lake and distant trees. To the right are two white egrets who are woven into the landscape or are maybe even being formed by it. In the foreground are an abundance of brightly coloured wildflowers with the sparkling water of the green lake behind and between them. This painting was made by building up many different layers of colour one over the other so that though it is clear what it is, the style itself is abstract and contemporary. It was inspired by many walks I took this summer around the various mill ponds and fishing lakes that are common in the Sussex area. It is also a nod to the huge Monet waterlilies paintings murals which are similarly large and hard to make sense of up close but are very clear from a distance and make you want to be there when you see them. My intention in painting this was to create an impression of August on a sunny day that I could keep forever. It is painted on deep edge canvas so no frame is needed and the edges are dark green to match the painting.
Polperro waiting for the tide
This is Claudine, a beautiful young lady of French Polynesian origin who, with her husband Armand, runs a marvellous little restaurant just off the chic (and very expensive) main street in the town of Aix-en-Provence in the south of France ï¿½ former home of Paul Cezanne. Their very reasonably priced restaurant is one for the gourmet and serves meals in a wonderfully romantic atmosphere enhanced by the mellow lighting from the candles, hence the inspiration for this painting. The work is painted in oil on a stretched canvas and is set in a contemporary dark mahogany effect tray frame measuring 88 cm x 68 cm x 35mm overall. It is strung ready for immediate hanging.
