Everyday Magic - a semi abstract forest landscape with birds

Title: Everyday Magic - a semi abstract forest landscape with birds
Description: 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a semi abstract forest with two bullfinches. The style is slightly art nouveau (organic forms in a pattern) and the colours range from purple, amethyst, magenta, orange and rose red through to Indian yellow and gold. The background trees and light through the forest is deliberately blurred to make it look out of focus whilst in the foreground two red bullfinches are in sharp focus as a contrast to the background. I often walk in Sussex woodland and often see these birds. I find the little flashes of colour and beautiful song quite magical. I wonder what magic they are creating when there are no humans around to notice it. This is another in a series of paintings I have been working on that are portals to another place. I like that it can be on a wall and provide an exit when you need to get away for while. It is on deep edge canvas, white edges, frame not necessary.

Artist Biography:

I paint large original oil paintings on canvas which are heavily inspired by Sussex, England. My subjects are modern contemporary landscapes, seascape paintings and animal paintings in an Expressionist, gestural style using thick oil paint.

On my website you will see paintings about Sussex meadows, woodland paths, English landscapes and seascapes. Each one has its own unique story. Most of my artworks are about hope, frustration, optimism, a bit of mystery and a feeling that things will get better and that there is a place somewhere in the universe that is perfect. I like to think I am painting art that assists the viewer to get what they want. I hope this works for you.

I like expressionist paintings and impressionist paintings and have developed a painting style that sits between these two. I have paintings for sale at my home studio and online art galleries. As a child, I taught myself to draw and paint by copying animals and horses out of books on an almost daily basis then in 1979 I did a foundation course at Chelsea and then a degree course at Brighton where I graduated in 1982 with a fine art degree in sculpture. I then worked in a studio on the seafront for a while making sculptures with an architect for clubs and hotels. On moving to East Grinstead in the late 80's, I began painting for an art agent that specialized in animal, people and bespoke portraits and soon became skilled at painting dogs and horses in a classical style. I also took on mural painting commissions and wrote and illustrated a few children's books. In the late 90's I began teaching art adult education courses for Central Sussex College as well as running my own art courses. I sell my paintings mostly in on-line galleries but also through real world galleries and exhibitions. I have exhibited at the Mall galleries in London, Chelsea open exhibition, local galleries such as Chequer Mead, East Grinstead, The Hawth Theatre, Sheffield Park, Lingfield, Brighton festival, Shoreham gallery and many others.
