Artist's description:

A poem which has always held great significance with me is Leisure by W H Davies which begins

"What is this life if full of care
We have no time to stop and stare
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows...."

It is achingingly obvious that some 100 years later these words have more truth than could have ever been conceived by the poet.

I suppose all artists take their time to stop and stare and that is our great privilege but even so we, like everyone else still miss so much through the pressure of daily existence and the speed with which our world rushes along.

I began a series of paintings some time ago painting flowers in very large format so that the viewer was able to enjoy the detail of each beautiful flower even as they rushed about their business.

I have now decided to sell some of this collection.
