Title: Between Worlds is a large oil painting of a stag and three deer in a S
Description: Between Worlds is 48x48x1.5 inches art nouveau style large oil painting of a stag and three deer in a Sussex bluebell wood with a lake and trees behind. This painting was inspired by walking through a lot of spring woods and spotting a lot of deer in them - especially during April and May in England. It is called between the worlds as the deer sometimes seem to me to stand between the physical and the material worlds. A group of white deer and a stag stand to the left in a woodland glade blinking in and out of existence. The colours match bluebells and other woodland flowers and the trees are bright green as they are in springtime. To the right there is a lake in the clearing and the hint of another path through the forest beyond. The idea I was trying to capture is the elusive nature of deer and of bluebell season. One minute deer are there watching you, the next they flash their white behind's at you and disappear. I love to see the seasons reflected in English woodland and like to capture a glimpse of April in particular. This is a very large canvas and does not need a frame. The edges are white and it is ready to hang.

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.
