Its late summer and small creeks run across the marshes, with a shingle barrier holding back the sea. Cows graze steadily to the right of the marshland, and a small yacht sails slowly across the sea. This was painted on location at Cley visitor centre on a beautiful autumn day. I'd put the cows in via artistic licence but a visitor who'd looked at the work as I was painting came back to tell me the cows were just there but out of my line of vision to the left and as we were chatting the yacht sailed into view. life mirroring art perhaps, or just knowledge of the landscape. take your pick..
All is not well in Fairyland 2
No 2 of the series of woodland disasters. "I get her out of the kitchen, and off to the ball. She meets the prince and has a great evening. All Cinderella had to do was be back by midnight, just one little request and can she do it? No, and now I'm in serious trouble with the chief Elf because the mice have run amok,there's bits of pumpkin everywhere and the prince has got the magic glass slipper and won't give it back.. Ungrateful girl."
ll is not well in fairyland 1
Just to prove that even in magical fairyland there are problems. The Woodland Tax bill is in, Mr Elf has been at the Oak Wine, the caterpillars have been at the toadstools, I just want some peace and quite and the damn butterflies won't go away, and to cap it all I've just trodden in fox cr*p. oil on canvas, with sunset glowing softly through a large woodland tree. The fairy is sitting at the base surrounded by toadstools and buitterflies. the tree and the toadstools have a sprinkling of gold dust on adding to the magical scene.
Its the end of a sunny day on the beach and the skies have turned rippling shades of yellows, golds and crimson fading to deep prussian blue. The reflections of the sky on the wet sand as the tide has turned have changed the beach to a crimson wonderland with soft waves rippling over the sands.
Tracks of my Deers
Quirky fun painting of gardening tools, compost and seeds all on a harlequin style background that weaves its way over and under the objects. Co coincidently a fellow artist said he could see a turtle in the painting - surprised me as I′d not painted one, and yet he thought it was deliberate. look closely and maybe you′ll see it too, over the left hand side of the watering can tucked just under the handle.This work is on paper and currently unframed, and will need to be framed behind glass. This can be arranged if you wish, for an additional cost.
Ball,Jug and Candle
Vibrant contemporary painting, in harlequin colours and patterns. Part Abstract and part Still Life the background shapes of a glass ball, a brass jug and a candlestick holder go opaquely over some of the shapes and yet can be seen underneath some of the transparent layers. The deep edge canvas sides are currently white and will be painted whatever colour you choose.
Tiptoe through the Tulips
Tiptoe through the Tulips Fantasy floral painting of beautiful orange and scarlet silky tulips, with sage green striped leaves, and violet,scarlet and yellow ribbons running and weaving in and out. The whole painting is covered in a myriad of tiny raindrops. some of the ribbons and leaves and parts of the petals are covered in an interference paint which shimmers under lights. Comments have suggested this painting is very reminiscent of a William Morris wallpaper pattern ! This painting is on canvas board and is framed in white wood.
Fantastic Mr Fox
Lovely rural pastel scene, the church lights are shining brightly across the snowy field, and the moon glimmers in a dark sky. Snow has settled on the top of the church and the wooden gate and Mr Fox is strolling calmly by the village pond. Of course for real rural authenticity he ought to have a rabbit hanging from his jaws and a few bloodspots in the snow but I thought that a step too far :) Comes mounted in cream and framed in a glazed narrow silver frame.
