Favourite Place Oils on canvas board 10 x 12 inches
Dawn over the ebb tide and stony beach.
The pools pick up the sun's light and give a stained glass appearance to the scene.
Viewers by now will know my liking for a little drama in my work. By nature I do not see myself as dramatic person but I love it in my paintings and in my home. Recently I painted all four walls in my sitting room black as I wanted a 'Gothic' theme. I am really happy with it.
Part of being a painter is training my eye and inner voice to notice what is around me. I hear my little voice telling me to study the colours and shapes in skies, over fields and around the shores. It comes automatically now each time I am outside.
Now I realise they must be burned into my mind as these colours and shapes appear in paintings created without anything in front of me. Particularly in my abstract work.
Here is a painting called 'Shifting Sands'. It was inspired by a visit to our Lincolnshire coast and I became interested in the erosion of the dunes and weathering over time.
Another painting is 'Passage of Time'...
Both paintings are 20 x 8 inches and can be displayed in both vertical and horontal format.
