Product description: 30 x 30 x 1.5 inches semi abstract landscape painting in summer rainbow colours with a swallow. I painted this on a hot day in September after a walk in the fields near where I live. It felt like end of summer as the next day the weather changed. I used very warm bright colours including bright orange, yellow, pink and green and I made the background blurred and shimmery to give the idea of flowers in the heat. The swallow is a regular in England in summer and I love to watch them scudding over the fields and hills of Sussex. However they will soon be leaving and although it feels a little sad, as heralds the end of summer, it is also optimistic as it looks forward to the beginning of autumn which sees equally beautiful landscapes. The painting style is semi-abstract, expressionist with art nouveau type shapes standing in relief in some parts especially round the bird. It is partly realistic and partly exuberantly decorative. Painted on deep edge canvas - edges white, no frame needed.

Then in 1979 I did a foundation course at Chelsea and then a degree course at Brighton where I graduated in 1983 with a fine art degree in sculpture. I then worked in a studio on the seafront for a while making sculptures with an architect for clubs and hotels. ‚Äč On moving to East Grinstead in the late 80's, I began painting for an art agent that specialised in...read more
