Gwarllwyneidos - revisited
The old stone barn in the farmyard of Gwarllwyneidos - nature is taking over. The grass is like a sea of greenery lapping at it's feet and the sky can be glimpsed through the roof where slates have given up the ghost and slid into the green sea below. I think I am it's only visitor. Watercolour and ink in an ivory mount
'A Good Place for a Horse'
This is the door into the barn / stable in Rhydowen, West Wales. Above the door is the remains of an old Latin inscription which says, I am told, 'A Good Place for a Horse'. It would have been a very good place to leave your horse if you were riding past and felt the need for some liquid refreshment in the Tafarn next door (now an antique shop).
Supernatural is a large semi abstract, expressionist oil painting of a glowing summer evening meadow with deer. It is vibrantly coloured with lots of overlapping transparent layers which you can look through to see different aspects of the landscape. There is a low sultry sun behind the trees and to the right is a deer stag just beginning to appear like an apparition. To the right is a group of three female deer also quite ethereal. These deer often appear in my paintings (one stag and three doeâs) and I was delighted, having just finished the painting, to see a group of fallow deer just like them in real life as a walked along a back road near Wadhurst! It was interesting that they made their appearance on this road as the meadows around this part of the Sussex Weald do have the same kind of feeling that I was putting into the painting. To see if you can also spot my deer and the meadows I am painting, park at the Greyhound Car park, Wadhurst, TN5 6AP and take any number of paths into the countryside there. It is 36x48x1.5 inches, wide white edges, white, no frame needed and ready to hang.
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.
A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
This Original Watercolour includes Poem Printed on coloured card to compliment the Artwork & Certificate of Authenticity. A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION Stone steps, ancient artifacts, within these walls, historical facts; creative craftsmen, made their own tools, man came a long way with the world he rules; but have things gone too far â is the world like an old banger car? Has the economy gone to our heads with no thought for the millions now dead? Historical disasters wiped out many lives, Historyâs repeating, but are we heading itâs teaching? Covid 19 is worse now than in May & I fear many are complacent, ignoring rules every day â All the grieving loved ones should have their say! If I was Prime Minister Iâd have Police on all streets, sending people home; except deliveries of our eats; with no human hosts to live in the virus would die, Iâd rather that, than you or I! We must care for Mother Earth And change our ways, care for each other, stop selfish ways or soon weâll all reach our end of days! Think of our NHS, how will they cope, even if you get it mild, think of vulnerable folk â self-isolate, donât spread it around; or on Earth, very soon, thereâll be no life to be found!
