Winter's Evening Oils on canvas board 12 x 10 inches
Dreamy and gentle, this painting reminds me of the ethereal atmosphere of twilight in winter.
It has a relaxed feeling. There are hedgerows, trees, tracks and trails reminiscent of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Taking its reference from my recent snowscapes I let the work come together casually in an abstract way. I wanted a loose, atmospheric scene.
Part of my studio work includes 'office and computer' jobs. I always make a Certificate of Authenticity and labeling for each finished piece ready for when they are shipped to a new home or to show in a gallery. This week I am preparing my work for my own show in March. Wooden frames are getting 3 coats of off-white paint, cords and hanging rings attached and the paintings are stacked around the house to plan my display.
My framer Graham Perkins at Forge Arts in Hackthorn, near Lincoln is currently making another 30 frames for this show and four group shows this summer and I am very grateful for his patience and help.
