Dance with the sun
Woodpecker Romance is a tall painting on canvas (40x16x1.5 inches with wide edges) of two woodpeckers flirting with each other on two trees. The style is art nouveau and contemporary. The two trees rise up in a winnowy elegant motion and the branches curl around each other making sinuous patterns against the gold tinted sunset sky. The paint is thick and textured and the patterns continue around the edge of the canvas on all sides. This painting is not a typical one for me as there was no real inspiration for it apart of just liking art nouveau and woodpeckers and getting a concept in my mind that it would look good. I like the simplicity of it and the playfulness of the birds. It is ready to hang and does not a frame.
Blea Tarn, Lake District
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.
Breaking dawn at Billingsgate Market
November Glowing is a large oil on canvas painting of a glowing autumn Sussex landscape with a deer stag among the trees. (36x48x1.5 inches). It is very colourful and vibrant and messy art nouveau expressionist in style. It was inspired by my memory of view from the back of the church yard in Burwash, East Sussex, during November of 2020. The trees still had some autumn leaves on them and the ground was wet and glistening. The fields glowed green and the small hills and vales between them where full of little streams. I spent 4 hours wandering about in the mud with low angled November sun rays blinding me. It sounds unpleasant but was in fact absolutely glorious. The edges of the painting have been deliberately blurred which helps direct the attention into the scene better. A stag stands between two trees considering his domain. This painting makes me happy. It reminds me of a beautiful place and beautiful day. It is dedicated to all the people who live in and around and take care of the landscapes of Burwash (Rudyard Kipling country). It is ready to hang, white edged deep edge canvas, ready to hang.
Still Life Hydrangeas
An oil painting of some beautiful pink hydrangeas that I picked out of my garden. They are sitting on a table in a vase in front of my room window. It is painted on a 20x16 inch canvas and is painted on all sides so can be hung without a frame or you can frame it if you like. The side views have a yellow cast because they were photographed in electric light.
Such a pleasure to do this painting with the colours and the strong caracter of this tiger, It is the second painting I have done of tigers the first is the female which is also shown in my gallery, they could be sold as a pair. This is oil on boxed canvas and painted edges so no need to frame.
