Summer Meadow

Title: Summer Meadow
Description: Summer Meadow is an original oil painting on canvas 30 x 24 x 0.5 inches of an August summer meadow with a swallow and wildflowers. It is painted in thick luxurious and very vibrant colours in an art nouveau semi abstract style. The swallows fly above the field over the wildflowers at the edge of a golden field of corn. Across the field you can see a gap in the trees that leads to another field. There are bright coloured willowy flowers in the foreground and the whole composition seems to sway and move in harmony with the swallow. This painting is part of a series of paintings inspired by me walking through Sussex in the summertime. I see swallows and I see beautiful fields, meadows, valleys, hills, farms, flowers, crops and trees and then make an impression from my memory of what I saw. I do this as the emotion I felt when looking at them is captured better for me than a photo or traditionally painted landscape would. It is on standard half inch wide canvas, white edges, ready to hang , framing recommended but not essential.

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.
