Artist's description:

Events in places near and far over the past few years have filled news outlets with images of strife and menace, both natural and man-made. Just as a volcano might inspire awe, so occasionally, if taken out of context, some of these images offer an eerie, abstract beauty as I found when I painted several views of the flooding in Somerset, close to where I grew up. In this painting, hard floodlight in a calm bit foggy evening silhouettes figures scurrying across railway tracks, with soft hues of pink and blue. I found the image irresistible, and have painted several versions of the scene, employing many light washes, dry brush and contrasting dark voids made with burnt umber and Prussian blue.

All paintings are wrapped and packed in robust card and posted
within one working day in the UK, slightly longer internationally.
