The Gamechanger is a large autumn landscape with a magical stag appearing on a woodland path. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, no frame needed. The style is semi abstract art nouveau and shows a deer stag on the left looking toward the viewer. He is not fully formed but is making his presence felt in that imperious way that stags have. Behind him and to the right is a path and autumn coloured trees in bright gold, orange and magenta. The forest itself was inspired by Eartham forest on the South Downs near Slindon. I was there in late summer and took a long walk through the various paths through the trees without meeting a soul. It was hot and quiet and a little bit spooky and I could believe every fairy story I ever read whilst I was there. The Stag is a recurring theme in Sussex landscape paintings because the forests that used to cover the area still have many pockets of woodland left where deer are quite abundant. Despite this, they manage to remain beautiful and if any woodland creature is magical, it is the deer. This stag has a message and you have to walk the path to find it. He is a gamechanger.
Shopping Trolley Finals
It`s the shopping trolley finals, and it looks like a very close finish...there seems to be one person though not very sports like, having a paddy, and throwing his trolley as he knows he can`t win...Shame! A small fun painting, just 14" x 10" x half inch thick. No frame required as I have also painted the edges. Painted on my own HANDMADE canvas board.

Wild Souls Wild Wood
Wild Souls Wild Wood is a large dark, textured oil painting of wild deer stag in a wild wood. It is 36x48x1.5 inches. The painting is very textured impasto and almost Gothic in style and shows a view into a dark forest towards a group of deer. The stag and three female deer stand looking out at us from the top of the painting in a glowing woodland clearing lit by golden yellow light. A purple blue line rises from the bottom centre of the painting and up towards up to the deer where it merges with them. This is a suggestion of the energy that seems to inhabit ancient forests and trees. I find it easy to believe that forests and the animals dwelling in them take care of each other. Although the painting is mostly composed of dark green, purple and blue, contrasted with the yellows, oranges and reds of the trees and deer it still manages to make a room feel cosy. This painting glows and due to the thick paint, it has facets that reflect different colours at different times of the day. Painted on deep edge canvas, edges also dark, no frame needed.
