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.
Godrevy Light house (Built 1858-1859) From Hayle
Irish Red Fox
This painting was produced in my tiny ground floor flat, I made up every excuse possible not to paint here, Too small not enough room, not enough light, ran out of paints, the list goes on! I had my close friends that gave me the encouragement and determination to paint against the odds, and have fun on the way. This was a joy to do, love the detail, the slyness and shyness of this clever cunning fox. Painted with oils on boxed canvas, no need to frame.
A DAY OUT IN PADSTOW
Forest Elemental is a 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches oil on canvas of a large deer stag materialising in an autumn forest. The style is semi abstract contemporary and is highly colourful. I have used a golden yellow glaze of paint to make it glow. This painting was started after I took a walk around the Kent High Weald area near Ide Hill (postcode TN14 6JW). I did see deer and I did go through some beautifully vibrant patches of woodland that were turning gold and red as part of the autumn display. There was a smell of oak leaves (the best autumn smell!) and lots of dappled golden light. It was quite magical and that is probably why I painted the stag as a magical being rather that a mundane one. The term Elemental means a spirit or guardian that looks after certain places. I like to think this big stag was looking after the ancient trees I was walking past. One of the reasons I paint woodland scenes is that it fascinates me how the atmospheres vary from woodland to woodland. Some are calming and pleasant and some can be downright scary. It is not hard for me, therefore, to imagine some of them have spirit guardians. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed
