Somewhere Waiting is a large semi abstract square oil painting of a mythical landscape with deer (40x40x1.5 inches). The stag and three female deer, stand at the centre of the painting and there is a hint of a waterfall below them and trees and mountains above and around them. The deer are small and well defined though slightly nebulous at the same time. I often use this same little posse of deer in my paintings as they seem perfect together. Below the deer, if you look closely, you can see the outline of a much bigger stag who was painted over and has now become part of the waterfall. The painting began with a simple desire to use the colours in it which include magenta, rose, purple, lilac, pale blue, white and golden yellow. The painting worked well as an abstract landscape but I feel it is better with the little deer adding some focus to it. Most of my paintings have a story or memory attached. This one is about the spiritual nature of deer and the idea that maybe they can move between worlds and can act as guides. This idea is common to many cultures and I like it. This painting is on 3D, deep edge canvas, edges white, ready to hang, frame not needed.

CHRYSTAL CLEAR - UNFRAMED ABSTRACT A4 ARCHIVAL PRINT
This A4 Print is on Bockingford double sided watercolour paper (190g 90lb) for inkjet printing on a Canon flatbed printer with genuine canon inks. The paper is archival and makes beautiful copies that make them look like an original. This was a photo of part of my painting "Fuse the Dichotomies" (which is still available on 20 x 30 inch Watercolour Board) and I made it into this A4 Print. Includes Poem printed on Coloured Card. FUSE THE DICHOTOMIES Fuse the dichotomies, see past the dualities, forget the formalities; remember One is all there is. Go within to the stillness, smooth water just is, crystal clear is the inner spark: pure awareness - hark; get through the mindless chatter; glimpse on things that matter; it's all inside - don't let the real you hide!
Seven Stags Appearing
Seven Stags Appearing is a very large oil painting of seven ethereal fallow deer stags in a bluebell forest. It is 36x60x1.5 inches on deep edge canvas and is ready to hang. The painting zooms the viewer into a springtime bluebell wood from dark blue edges into a clearing where seven stags are materializing. The stags appear and disappear fast in British woodland as do bluebells. In fact, spring is over way too fast and thus has a fairy tale feeling about it. As a keen walker I am poised every year for the first bluebells and when not actually trawling around in woodland can be found painting my memories of the woodland I have been trawling around in. This particular woodland was inspired by the many pockets of woodland around the Cowden area and the fallow deer I see at the same time (park near the church and head in any direction! TN8 7JE). The stags themselves are a magic number seven and one of them is white. The bluebell flowers are not botanical studies but the colours themselves suggest them as I am fond of things that are not abstract and not too traditional either. This painting says what I wanted to say about the transient nature of spring in an English woodland and the magic that is there if you care to look for itÃ¢â¬Â¦

It is painted in acrylics on a stretched canvas in a naive style with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it could be framed if you so wish.
