Inspired by the gales around my home and a rediscovery of a favourite Ted Hughes Poem: "Wind"
"This house has been far out at sea all night,
The woods crashing through darkness, the booming hills,
Winds stampeding the fields under the window
Floundering black astride and blinding wet
Till day rose; then under an orange sky
The hills had new places, and wind wielded
Blade-light, luminous black and emerald,
Flexing like the lens of a mad eye." T.H ©
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 here - 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!
