    Winchester Mists

    I like to generally reflect the seasons in my paintings and there is a special quality to landscape in Winter...but I am aching now for Spring time and some truly dark darks and light lights!

    Hillier Gardens Centenary Border

    Hillier Gardens Centenary Border

    I have re-worked some of my paintings inspired by the fantastic Centenary flower borders at Hillier Gardens this week. Having been separated from them for some time I am pleased with the results. Sometimes a bit of absence and a fresh eye is a good thing!

    My latest painting sale to a purchaser based in the USA has brought my tally to 60 paintings sold through Artfinder, many across America to buyers in Maryland, California, Illinois, Texas, Florida, Michigan, Georgia, Indiana and New York states which I find very satisfying.

    Farley

    Farley

    I am very pleased that my Painting 'Farley II' sold this week to a purchaser in Winchester. This painting was created 'En Plein Air ' at the Farley mount monument on the outskirts of Winchester. There is definitely an added extra quality to paintings that are created at the place that they are depicting I feel. I think that it is because it is a composite of impressions over a period of time.

    Winchester Cathedral

    Winchester Cathedral

    I am particularly pleased to have sold my painting 'Winchester Cathedral II' to a buyer in Winchester. It is a bit different and one of a series of four. Not to everyone's taste but just needed the right buyer. In this case a nice young lady. It takes 60 years to get the perspective wrong in the right way like this!

    Season of Mists

    Season of Mists

    Always inspired by Autumn Colours.. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun... "To Autumn" is the last major work that Keats completed before his death in Rome, in 1821, where the 25-year-old succumbed to tuberculosis...Only 25.... Makes you think.

    Big and Bright!

    Big and Bright!

    I have enjoyed working on a series of large bright abstract paintings recently. All focusing on only the one colour and still incorporating my characteristic reflective paints. Great colour therapy during these challenging times in the UK. I am feeling better already.
