Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

In the South Lakes area of Cumbria whatever snow we get tends to be limited and short lived - a mixture of being close to the coast and sheltered by the many ranges of hills and mountains all around. However, there are exceptions and seasons where everything is covered by blankets of white. Walking around the farm in the small hamlet of Yealand Redmayne where I used to live - to the farm where my studio is based - these works seek to recreate something of the space and quiet that somehow becomes even more exaggerated under snow. Evident in my work is the desire to venture off the beaten track and with this series I have painted areas that are close to me and my life in Cumbria but overlooked by the masses. They are slices of real life in a rural setting. As with other work these paintings have been built up in layers and a bold impasto style that reflects my desire to connect with the environment.

Signed by me on the front - my work is usually available framed but these paintings are offered at a much reduced figure without.
