Waiting - an autumn forest landscape

Title: Waiting - an autumn forest landscape
Description: 40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original semi abstract oil painting of an autumn woodland landscape. It is art nouveau and whimsical in style and hints at trees and forests and waterfalls and other slightly mystical elements. A group of 4 deer, a stag and three doe's stand to one side looking at us and waiting. Deer are often represented in folklore as spiritual guides and it is easy to see why. They have the ability to appear and then vanish again very easily. I often paint these 4 deer and hope to meet them one day. It was inspired after a walk around Forest Row where I live. Forest Row and the Ashdown Forest does not look like this but a few tweaks and abstract ministrations here and then can make it so. 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.
