Step Inside

April 16, 2012

Step in?

Sure. Of course.

No, not into the studio. This is an invitation to step into the painting. That’s right, to explore from the inside as in a dream whilst colours flow and the image evolves. Then walk away when the painting is done. This is my experience everyday.

The painting now waits for someone else to step in. Someone who stops, looks, feels compelled to explore, and they step inside. Exploration becomes captivating.

“Poppy Pageant”

August 20, 2011

The wonder of summer is colour: especially the marvelous colours of both wild and gardened flowers. When I was in Italy recently there were wild poppies blushing the landscape everywhere and I rather suspect this is so for much of Europe: I have the image of Monet’s “Wild Poppies, Near Argenteuil” in mind as I suggest this.

“Poppy Pageant” is a canvas large enough for poppies to seem life size. These are garden poppies that bloom ardently. Do you bond with poppies each summer and feel a sense of loss as they fade? Your passion for poppies will bloom year round with “Poppy Pageant” in your collection.
