Hares Meadow

Title: Hares Meadow
Description: Hares Meadow is a 40x40x1.5 inches oil painting on canvas of a yellow hare beside a meadow of trees and wildflowers. The style is contemporary art nouveau and is very colourful. The hare sits to the left and looks back at us. She is generously showing us a glimpse of her realm with its trees and flowers and possibilities and the idea of veils or curtains being drawn back makes it a little dreamlike. I have only ever seen one hare in real life and I was struck by how beautiful it was whilst at the same time being so strangely awkward. I can totally see why they often feature in fairy tales and legends about magic. The background of the painting has been blended and blurred whilst the foreground paint is thicker with more definite brushstrokes. This adds to the slightly ethereal feeling of it. Like all my artwork, it is a tribute to nature and an invitation to humans to cherish and protect it. It is dedicated to all those who are doing just this. It is painted on wide edge canvas, no frame needed, ready to hang, white edges.

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.
