Spirit Guides - deer in a winter forest
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a group of deer in a winter forest. The deer are looking inquiringly at us - as deer do - and there is a suggestion of frosty branches and trees and snow. The style is a little art nouveau and slightly abstract and expressionist. The colours are pale with lots of white. The name refers to the fact that deer are often seen as being guide between this world and another. Living near the Ashdown forest as I do, I often see them and do find them beautiful and mysterious. Oil on deep edge canvas, edges white, no frame necessary.
A Summer Place
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of a summer landscape. I called it 'a summer place' after a song I used to love as a little kid - I can hear this song when I look at the painting. The landscape shows three swallows swooping over the scene with red reeds or poppies, a lake, some pine trees and the sea. It is art nouveau and decorative but also quite painterly and abstract. I painted it after a visit to the Cuckmere river in Sussex and tried to capture the gorgeous ecstatic enthusiasm of the wildlife and birds there as they follow the river to the sea. I was quite happy to be there myself :-)
Burning Bright - a tiger in a glowing forest
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a tiger in a forest. It is painted in a semi-abstract, art nouveau style and shows a warm forest landscape with light coming through the trees. A tiger sits on a tree and dominates the landscape as tigers do. She is painted partly traditionally and partly in a painterly style which makes an interesting contrast. I am well aware of the danger tigers are in and so decided to paint a place where at least one can exist safely. Edges are white, no frame is needed. Meet the owner of SussexPai

Watchers in the Ice Forest - a winter landscape with deer
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of a winter landscape with deer. A row of deer - doe's and stag's - line up on the bank of a river watching us. Behind them is an icy forest and a lake seen through the trees. The colours are muted and hint at a dawn sunrise in winter with mist and ice on the trees. The style is semi abstract art nouveau. Deer are a common muse for me as they have a mystery to them that makes me feel they can take me somewhere I want to go. They appear often when I walk in the woods and fields of Sussex and disappear just as fast. If I ever manage to follow one who knows where I will end up?...
LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Fabian Waits - semi abstract landscape i
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a large semi abstract landscape. A red deer stag stands watching us from the forest where beams of light filter through the trees and light up the gaps between the trees. He is dark but slightly luminous. The style is lyrical and slightly art nouveau. It is painted in autumn colours and hints of a lake and mist through trees. The stag is ready to take us somewhere beautiful. It was inspired by the fabian nature of deer who are the true unicorns of our English woodland. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Life is magic - semi abstract landscape with birds
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a semi abstract slightly mystical landscape. The painting hints at a lake and trees with autumn colours. Two red and back woodpeckers dissolve out of the scenery and the painting appears to shimmer with its different transparent layers. I was trying to catch that feeling you get you are walking and suddenly spot something but can't quite work out what it is until you get closer to it. One of the great joys of walking in the country is getting glimpses of wildlife in unexpected places. I love this and this painting, I hope, reflects it. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.
Angels under the sea - an underwater seascape with angel fish
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches original oil painting three striped angel fish under a crystal clear blue ocean. The light shines through he ripples of the water and bounces off of the sandy sea bottom leaving white electrical type patterns on the seabed. The three fish swim along as if in a ballet in close formation and unaware of being beautiful. Note that there are hairs in the painting from the blending process which have been left in so you know it is an original! The edges are white. It is a Deep edge canvas so does not need a frame. Ready to hang.
Going Elsewhere - a winter landscape with crows
A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract original oil painting of a winter landscape. Two crows fly high above the winter trees and the rookery below them. Through the trees can be seen frosty fields, a river, hills and maybe the sea or a lake beyond. The trees have the suggestion of magnolia or other pink blossom on them. The crows are not quite of this world and the entire landscape shimmers and seems to dissolve slightly as you look at it. It was painted after walking along the South Downs near Kingston. Crows are constant companions when you walk in England. Almost as if they are keeping an eye on you. I am fond of them but also find them quite mysterious. It would not surprise me if they can flip from one dimension to another - hence the title of the painting. Deep edge canvas, edges white, frame not needed.
