A Beautiful Truth - an abstract Winter landscape with swallows

Title: A Beautiful Truth - an abstract Winter landscape with swallows
Description: A large 48 x 36 x 1.5 inches original oil painting on canvas of a winter landscape. It is semi-abstract in style and painted in hues of violet, pink, orange and yellow. Two swallows fly over a a shimmering, misty lake. The refection of the rising sun can be seen through the trees and in the water. It was inspired by a walk I took in December near Ardingly in Sussex. I was trying to show that, although not as colourful as the other seasons, winter can be very beautiful and that nature and the seasons go relentlessly though their cycles regardless of what humans are doing and that a good way to stay sane is simply to walk and observe this. Nature is endlessly fascinating.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.


I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90’s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.



I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.



My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.



I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.



My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same – even if only for a little while.
