On The Edge: Tree Frog

Title: On The Edge: Tree Frog
Description: This tree frog is part of a series of paintings entitled ‘On the Edge’. I wanted to explore how much, or how little of the subject you needed to see in order to still recognise it. Perhaps I should push this a little further and call the next series ‘Falling Off the Edge’! Of course, with subjects like the tree frog, ‘on the edge’ carries the dual meaning of being under threat from ecological or environmental disaster. It, therefore, reminds us to tread lightly on this planet we call home and steward its resources responsibly. Painted in acrylics on a 50x70cm canvas ready to hang. All sides are painted, as per Gallery hanging requirements. The work is signed on the front, and a Certificate of Authenticity is included in the purchase.

Artist Biography:

I'm a self-taught artist working predominantly with acrylics on canvas - I just love the sense of immediacy and vibrant colours these produce.

I take inspiration from the sweeping landscapes of the Scottish Borders, but aim to draw the viewer's attention down from the general to the particular, as if peeling back public layers to reveal a specific, private moment in time like a kingfisher's dive, or a cow's inquisitive lick. The backgrounds of my paintings are generally fairly neutral and without distraction in order to focus on the smaller expressions of beauty inherent in our everyday lives.

For me, painting lets out the magic that's hidden all around us.

Artist News/Exhibitions:

I have had three exciting exhibitions in the Scottish Borders so far this year, and now look forward to catching my breath!
