Nature Unleashed is a very large oil painting on canvas of an exuberant Sussex wildflower meadow featuring the South Downs, swallows and poppies. It is 72x48x1.5 inches. The style is semi-abstract and art nouveau and is very vibrant and colourful. It was inspired by walks taken in fields and woodlands around the South Downs in summer when the wildflowers are at their best and the poppies, in particular, stand out against the green grass and reeds. The scene shows an abundance of flowers in the foreground and trees and fields leading off into the distance behind them. Two barn swallows swoop over the flowers and you can see the patterns their motion makes. Swallows are birds you see often in Sussex and they are very much woven into the landscape of summer. The painting was made from memory using reference phots to add small details here and there. Memory painting tends to reflect how I felt about a place I have been to rather than ârealisticâ details as such and I like this way of working. What I feel about an English Sussex summer is that it is beautiful and wild and I am happy I caught this feeling and in such a large canvas! The edges are dark green and it is ready to hang, no frame needed
Echo With Movement
I have had great fun creating some colourful abstract paintings lately.. As I have become more disabled it has been harder for me to continue to use brushes like before.. this new technique to me enables me to use colour without them... This artwork is 2 canvas each 8in square..I have chosen to hang them as shown,hanging in a diamond shape the red paint from the top one appears to be continuing down onto the the canvas hanging below to one size .. There is so much to see when you study them..far more detail than can be seen in these photos.. The paintings continues around all sides, and they have been varnished to protect them... I have not strung these canvas , as there are so many different ways they can be hung.. They will sit happily on a small tack placed in the wall.
I am enjoying doing some different art lately...after becoming a lot more disabled of late I am discovering new techniques of creating art.. ''Bizarre'' is very colourful, with lots going on in there! Lots of 'cells' of colour abound-- I have included 2 close up details.. The canvas could be hung any way you choose-its very much personal choice,. 25% of all sales will be donated to the O'Connor Haematology/Cancer Unit , Royal Shrewsbury Hospital where my son has been treated. now sold

This is a portrait painted in the classic style. It was pre-selected for the RP exhibition at the Mall Galleries but did not make the final cut. It sold on the preview evening of a prestigious Yorkshire exhibition. The painting is set in a contemporary dark mahogany effect tray frame measuring 69cm x 48 cm overall x 35 mm deep. I am happy to accept commissions for similar works - please contact me for details.

Horse Metamorphosis - a large contemporary red oil painting of beautif
Horse Metamorphosis is a 31.5 x 47x.0.5 inches large contemporary red oil painting of beautiful gold Arabian horse against an abstract bright red background. The golden horse dances in the foreground inside a dark forest with mottled light falling in patches on the path out towards the clearing. The path leads out of the woods and into a glowing summer wildflower meadow. Veils of transparent bright red hang over the scene as the horse begins to emerge from that world into a different one. The painting was started years ago simply to reflect the happiness I get when looking at a beautiful horse but become something more when the red veils were added which gives it a real presence. The original message of the painting was that there is more to life than hiding in the dark. I think now the message is more that there are other realities and that is worth exploring them. It is painted on thin edged canvas painted red, ready to hang.
