Elemental - a sunset seascape with horses
A 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of horses on a beach at sunset. It is called 'elemental' as the four horses are each running in a different direction and have power as the elements do. There is a suggestion of sunset or sunrise and waves rolling in on the sand with warm pink, orange and yellow clouds in the background. In the distance and from the horses themselves, there is another suggestion of electricity or lighting. The style is partly traditional and partly contemporary with carefully painted horses and then thick decorative layers of paint made in contrast to this. The intention of this painting is to make a representation of an explosive energy being unleashed rather than just being a pretty picture of horses on a beach. Not sure how well I succeeded but I had fun trying.
In Another Place - a Tiger kingdom
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract painting of a tiger in a beautiful landscape. The tiger is climbing the branches around her and looks over the lake, trees and jungle in the background. She searches or is maybe just making sure all is as it should be. The painting is slightly art nouveau and is painted in very vibrant, slightly blurred colours which makes it a little mystical. This is another in a series of big cat paintings where I am trying to provide a safe space for the animals to be. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed.
Red Magic - A Red painting with red deer at dawn
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract red original oil painting of three magical red deer in a red dawn. The three stags stand and stare at us through a haze of red light. Behind the middle stag is a rising morning sun and there is a suggestion of trees and a lake behind them. Two portals lead out of the landscape and elsewhere. The dawn sky is pink. In the foreground are strange red shapes that could be poppies or may be something else materializing. The painting was inspired by the fact that I wanted to make some red art with some power to it. Deer have a mystical and enchanting presence naturally so made a good subject. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed.
Weaving Magic - an abstract leopard landscape art
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting in art nouveau semi abstract style. This large landscape is painted using thick red, yellow and amethyst tones and has lots of sinewy lines which weave in and around each-other. There is the suggestion of trees and a lake in the background and red flowers in the foreground, A leopard sits up a tree leisurely switching her tail back and forth as she weaves a spell. The environment made her and she is enchanting it. This is another in a series of big cat paintings where I am painting a space for my cat to live. They can disappear deeper into their new world whenever they wish. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Messengers of the Gods
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a 4 crows in an abstract winter forest. The crows fly in elegant formation against an abstract, art nouveau type background that looks like a winter forest at sunset or dusk. However, it has been deliberately blurred to make it look distant. The crows by comparison have been painted very sharply so that they are obviously near to the foreground. Strange patterns that are reminiscent of pagan runes surround the crows which make the scene slightly mysterious. It was inspired by the fact that crows are often thought of as spiritual messengers and by the fact that I often feel they are monitoring me when I walk in their territory and reporting my progress to someone! I like a mystery and I love crows. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Forest Souls - an autumn forest with deer
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a large semi abstract autumn forest with deer. The landscape shows an abstract forest with a row of deer stags and does silhouetted against the light through the trees. They stand looking from two sides of a forest and there is a hint of waterfall or lake in the distance. The colours are very warm and vibrant. The deer watch silently. They wait to lead those with a sense of adventure to an exciting new world of possibilities... Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Ocean Dancers
A 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a calm blue sea with two tropic birds wheeling and tumbling above it. This was painted in a slightly traditional and slightly expressionist style. The colours are muted and hint at late afternoon. There are small waves rolling in and light sparkles off the water. The intention of this painting was simply in response to many hours spent watching sea birds spiraling and gliding around in the sky like dancers. The ocean is a great place to watch birds and I got a little carried away trying to capture the sheer elegance of birds over water.
LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Jungle Portal - the leopard's realm
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a semi abstract landscape with a leopard. It is painted on a square canvas which is dark at the edges and gets lighter towards the centre giving the idea of a portal or doorway to another world. The leopard crouches on a branch waiting for something to occur. She adds a touch of realism to the glimpse you see of her jungle realm. The scene around her hints at a river and colourful plants and I wonder if I can go through this portal into this jungle or if leopard can get out... Deep edge canvas, white edges, frame not necessary.
Watchers in the Ice Forest - misty landscape with deer
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of deer at dawn in a misty forest. A long row of deer stand across a river looking at us out of the trees. It is semi abstract and slight art nouveau in style and is painted in autumn winter dawn colours of peach, yellow's, white and violet grey. The sun glows through the mist low above the forest tree line. It is icy with frost and early morning thaw makes a mist. The deer know something we don't so they simply wait and watch us. Inspired by a morning walk in the Ashdown forest in autumn. Shiny finish, deep edge canvas, edges white, frame not needed.
Revelation - a path through an autumn wood
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a path through an autumn wood. Three female deer and one stag watch from the right as the light beckons though the trees. It promises a discovery of some kind. The style is slightly art nouveau, semi abstract and is painted to give a blurred out of focus effect. This path through a forest is a persistent theme for me as I walk often in woodland like this. And when I do, I am forever feeling like I will discover something magical just around the next bend. The trees whisper it, the sunlight hints at it, the deer lead to it. Maybe one day I will find it (whatever it is!)
