Sunburst Full

“When the sun bursts through the darkness it emphasises even the smallest, beautiful details.”

Bursting forth through layers of nature and foliage the sun brings growth and a new perspective on things. I was inspired to create this following a nature walk on a brilliantly light and sunny day. The sunlight highlighted every tiny detail of nature, bringing sparkle and shimmer in a magical way to each leaf, berry and twig I saw.

Sunburst is an original acrylic painting on canvas measuring 20 x 16 x 0.7 inches. It features a light warm area of sunlight surrounded by foliage and growth in a multitude of hues with metallic gold highlights that catch the light It has been signed on both the front and back.

Unusual Still Life Full

“Even the most mundane objects hold a beauty waiting to be perceived.”

With this piece I wanted to do something different and experimental using mundane objects in a still life with a difference. Look hard and you can make out the forms of the objects used to inspire this piece amongst the colour, pattern and play that they inspired. Every time I look at this piece I see something new to engage with.

Sometimes an old painting cannot be saved. I have been known to hold onto paintings, some finished, some not that I do not like for one reason or another or lose my inspiration for, for literal years. But there comes a time where you have to either finish it and move on, throw it away or turn it into something else. I detest the waste of materials so throwing them away is not an option.

I have been working through my WiPs to clear out both the studio and my headspace, which tends to get clogged on these particularly challenging pieces and ‘Transition’ was born. The name, I feel, is fitting given the process that occurred to create it:

This painting is an exploration of the colour pink using rose acrylic paint with white and black to explore the range of tones possible from just one colour.

“Recovery can be slow and painful but it’s necessary.”
