MYSTERY AND MOVEMENT IN ABSTRACT ART
Oil on narrow box canvas 100 x 127 cm £600
We all need an escape hatch. Mine is my front door. When I walk through it with no plan or destination in mind, I'm never disappointed. My rhythmic footsteps lead me down familiar streets, always to a new experience, a new wonder and new fuel for my imagination. An unpromising sludgy pond brings a thrilling close encounter with a dragonfly. The double yellow lines, hated by motorists, are a symbol of freedom to who knows where when you are following them on foot. The lines in my paintings are the same. They trace adventures, and I hope they will lead you on your own great escape into the endless possibilities of your own imagination.

"Eye to eye with a Dragonfly" - an encounter with a dragonfly in late autumn had me painting through the winter and into the spring. See this new series of paintings in my Gallery page and read the story in my latest blog post.
My egg-tempera painting, The Green Bank, on this page, has been selected for inclusion in Labyrinth Gallery's Planet Recovery Project, a gorgeous online exhibition of art and photography on an environmental theme. Planet Recovery Project is on for six months, and my picture, The Green Bank (shown on this page), has its own soundscape in the Planet Recovery exhibition.
