Night Magicians is a large oil painting on canvas of three white barn owls flying across a lilac and orange twilight sky. It is contemporary art nouveau in style which you can see from the stylised shapes of the twigs and branches of the delicate white tree tops. Each of the owls (associated with the Goddess Athena by the way) is looking a different direction as if they are about to go their separate ways. Owls donât really flock together so maybe they are. Owls are elegant beautiful birds and are all the more mysterious from being so quiet and hard to spot during the day time. This idea alone was enough for me to want to paint this. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, wide edge canvas, ready to hang, no frame needed.

An original watercolour of a yacht sailing into the sunset in Grenada, West Indies [The Spice Island] in December 2010. The clouds were spectacular lighting up in a rainbow of pastel colours as the Trade Winds blew them across the horizon. This painting will come single mounted and framed to suit customer requirements.
Summer Calls is a 16x40x1.5 inches wide panoramic oil on canvas painting of a summer landscape with swallows with an abundance of wildflowers which makes the colours rainbow and very vibrant. This painting represents a fond memory of last summer in the fields near where I live in Forest Row. There is a shallow valley of mostly farmland which attracts swallows each summer and I really enjoy watching them wheeling up and down of over the corn fields which have wildflowers growing at the edges. It has been painted as part of a series of four landscapes about the seasons.
