The Irish Red Stag
A BRIGHT SUNFLOWERS DAY
Echo of an English Summer
"IN THE STUDIO & PERFECTION"
I went through a period of selling semi-abstract landscapes, roughly 8 years and after a while they become a process, routine and in time a tedium, many artists who whish to be commercial experience this. Ultimately I started to complete a landscape then I would abuse the finished product by dripping paint down it - it was cathartic.
This one held in my reserve collection shows the inkling to do something different to a landscape painting, I made the horizon a solid slightly impasto and thickly painted swathe - it demarcated the land and the sky overtly strongly and I feel this was one which is, a piece caught in time, reflects towards my future thought processes and actions.
It reminds me of an oil painting called ' One more bloody Sunset ' an original painting which I took with me to The other Art exhibition in London and gave away to a charming female art student who fell in love with it - softy? Maybe but it helped me get past some angst and is part of my Art Career.
