Woodpecker Romance

Title: Woodpecker Romance
Description: Woodpecker Romance is a tall painting on canvas (40x16x1.5 inches with wide edges) of two woodpeckers flirting with each other on two trees. The style is art nouveau and contemporary. The two trees rise up in a winnowy elegant motion and the branches curl around each other making sinuous patterns against the gold tinted sunset sky. The paint is thick and textured and the patterns continue around the edge of the canvas on all sides. This painting is not a typical one for me as there was no real inspiration for it apart of just liking art nouveau and woodpeckers and getting a concept in my mind that it would look good. I like the simplicity of it and the playfulness of the birds. It is ready to hang and does not a frame.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.

I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90�s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.

I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.

My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.

I like to think that paintings have �little souls� woven into them by artist�s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.


My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same � even if only for a little while.
