Shimmering Spring - a landscape paintings with blossom

Title: Shimmering Spring - a landscape paintings with blossom
Description: 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original semi abstract oil painting of a Spring forest landscape with blossom trees. This painting is muted in tones and full of white, cream, pale pinks and lilacs and caramel colours. It is art nouveau and semi abstract in style and shows woodland view with trees and a lake and a small deer stag on the left. It started life as a much brighter painting but I liked it better once I had toned it down. At a glance it looks like a neutral toned abstract but as you look closer you see the blossom and the trees and the get the feeling of Spring. The deer presides over this scene as he does in many of my landscapes. This is his space domain and he is the spirit of the forest and the season. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.

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.
