Tony Broadbent's Gallery
The wind that rocked the cradle
Titled piece to a series of paintings done in my own style and description.
Abstract expressionism is usually about angst and outpouring of purpose - it has it s own genre and following But the passion can be turned inwards, be considered and peaceful, reflective, calm and almost serene if not a beautiful feeling or mood.
These works represent that aim through paint on canvas I wish to engender a connection for the person viewing the abstract image.
Although I ve done quite a few, I have never thought to title one as a badge, a label, a description as of fact. Now I have and I hope just seeing if not possessing the image is enough to start a moment of selfish reflection.
We should all dream, fantasize and wonder how it would be to enjoy peace and be without any woe, whatsoever.
PRINTS are in consideration please inquire.

Sometimes being patient, courteous, even forgiving whilst we wait is a well known British attribute.
Unnecessary, frustrating when you know or even suspect that when you do get your turn you will either be put on a loop, played music to.,
ignored, told what you already know, misunderstood, passed on to someone else,
lost the connection and the rest!
That was the inspiration behind this relatively simple painting, I've been there you have been there....let alone physically waiting.
Behind every Cloud
An original oil painting by Tony Broadbent.
Using vibrant colours for effect, warmth and mood, I bring this slightly surreal skyscape into your home. It is there to provide an uplift, a change and a promise of better things to come, hence the title. A technical but fun painting none the less.
It makes a statement and cannot fail but to be observed, it commands attention in a nice way and is both easy and complicated. I enjoyed painting this one. Please note its size it is 84 inches wide ( 7 feet ) x 20 inches on box canvas.
SOLD to Jon Ward.
No Man is an Island
Inspired by a view over rooftops in a far off land. I loved the changing colours, bold and vibrant reflecting the sunshine.
Even the shadows and general - feel - gave me the sense of well being and contentment, all this from something mundane and simple.
This painting is now SOLD awaiting despatch 26th May 2013
