This work was inspired by a walk in the woods at dusk. On one side was a glorious sunset and on the other was a glowering sky which looked ready to dump a ton of rain on my head. I took note of the shapes surrounding me as I walked, many of them recorded 'blind' in my sketchbook so as to capture the feel of them rather than an exact replica. I passed a river, clods of earth from an uprooted tree, rubble from an old stone ruin and as I emerged from the trees a hot air balloon floated high above my head. Dusk is a magical time and I wanted to create that feeling of magic and how, when you put elements of the ordinary together, you can create a landscape that is almost alien.

This was a piece I worked on over a period of a few months. I took my time and tried to react to the layers of paint that were there rather than impose my will upon them. What I ended up with was a mixture of reaction and deliberate manipulation. I love this piece. The colours are vibrant and I think the more you look at it the more you see.

It was created using card, fabric, ink, watercolour, acrylic paint, home made stamps and oil pastels. There are sections where paint has been applied using a sponge, a pallet knife, it has been dribbled on and in some sections scraped off. All of this creates unusual textures and shapes.

It comes unframed but can be hung as is.

All paintings are packed very carefully in cardboard boxes (recycled where possible) with generous layers of bubble wrap to protect them.
