Equine Dreaming - large abstract oil painting in red and black with tw
Equine Dreaming is 44x54 inches large, framed red painting of two black Arabian horses, abstract style, in a poppy field. This painting was originally painted to show me as a little girl in a poppy field dreaming of the two horses I would one day own. Unfortunately I grew up allergic to horses so this never happened. Instead, I painted them. Recently I made the painting more abstract and added a red background. You can still see a suggestion of poppies and green fields, hills and trees beyond the two back horses and you can still see a little girl in a yellow dress picking poppies and dreaming of horses. I chose red simply because it works well with black and is the complement to green which was the original background colour. The painting is framed in a metallic burnished copper and silver frame, two inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. The shine works beautifully with the shine of the two horses and the radiant red background
Red Riding Hood in Mosaic
This is an extremely unusual representation of a nude female figure in a red cloak apparently formed as a mosaic of coloured tiles but is in fact painted on a stretched canvas, ready to hang and set in a contemporary dark mahogany effect tray frame. It is meticulously painted with great attention paid to each individual tile. This would be an eye catching talking point in any display. The frame measures 68cm x 48 cm overall x 35 mm deep.

A Piece of Magic - a pink abstract painting with birds and wildflowers
A Piece of Magic is a 30x40x1.5 inches original oil painting of two nuthatch birds in the corner of a wildflower field at dawn. It is art nouveau, semi abstract, and part traditional in style and was inspired by me spotting one of these little birds on a tree trunk for the first time recently. They are small and elusive and very endearing little birds but quite hard to see as they are so small. The background of this painting is pink, lilac, light blue, golden yellow and white and is my attempt to hint at sun through a tangle of meadow of flowers in May at dawn. I observe what I see around me as I walk through the landscape but do not try to capture botanical accuracy. Instead I paint the impression formed on my memory from something I have seen and want to share. For this reason the birds are painted fairly realistically but their little corner of a field is only hinted at as it easier for me to show the feeling of it this way. Paintings are little worlds presented by artists to show what they find beautiful or ugly about the world. I prefer to concentrate on the beauty of this world rather than the ugly and I love how nature is permanently performing beautiful little scenarios like this, available to anyone who makes the effort to go and look. This painting is on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang.
