One Tree Hill was inspired by the poetry of Ted Hughes.
His poem "A Wind Flashes The Grass" holds some memorable line which I refer back to again and again in my paintings:
"And the incomprehensible cry, from the boughs, in the wind sets us listening for below words, meanings that will not part from the rock," & "The stirring of their twigs against the dark, travelling sky, is the oracle of the earth..." Hughes' poetry has long since been an inspiration to me as it captures the essence of the Yorkshire landscape I know so well, with all its soulful spirituality and rugged beauty mingled into one. Brimming with secrets to spill, if only we knew when and where to look.
Mixed media painting inspired by Nature - available here as a Ltd Edition print, signed, titled and numbered, together with a signed certificate of authenticity. Free delivery worldwide.
Many of my mixed media images start out life as watercolour / gouache paintings and / or charcoal / pencil drawings and gradually evolve through a variety of digital painting and illustration processes. Since my "originals" vary considerably from the finished printed product, I only ever sell exclusive small run (10's & 20's) Ltd Edition prints of my imagery - and consider these to be my "finished artwork".
Since I monitor all aspects of the output - in partnership with my local fine art printer - you can be guaranteed of the very highest quality finish, using longevity ink and premium heavyweight paper, as well as a cast iron assurance that no further Ltd Editions will be printed other than the two sizes ( medium size shown here in 20's, or the larger 94 x 62cm's size available in editions of 10 by request* I have listed a handful of larger prints... message me - or use the "make me an offer" button on one of these listings and simply give me the title of the alternative image you are looking for. I will respond with a price and delivery timescale for you to consider at your leisure.) Ltd editions are signed, titled and numbered on the front - I will always forward the earliest available editions first - I never hold back early editions.
Postage is within 10 working days of payment, however - in most cases - I will post out much faster than this. I pack carefully rolled, bubble-wrapped, inside large diameter toughened cardboard tubes, to ensure prints reach you in excellent condition and "always" post recorded delivery to ensure a speedy safe transit. I will notify you of the tracking ref as soon as your item is posted.
Please feel free to message me for any further information. I am always happy to discuss my work. If you love my work but really can't afford the asking price, feel free to use the "make an offer" button. I promise to give "all" offers my serious consideration - I want my work to be enjoyed and there's no greater buzz for an artist than knowing someone loves your work enough to live with it in their home or workplace!
Thanks for looking. Have an inspiring day!
