‘Hard Rain’ (again!) & 6 small panels

I think finally I’ve finished this large piece, about 4’x7′

At the same time as working on the big piece stapled to my wooden studio wall, I’ve also been making some small studies on birch panel. These 6, each only 12×16″

The large piece and the small ones are interconnected, both by my process (lifting areas of wet paint in tissue paper, from one work to another, in a type of printing), and also in subject. Although all the works are totally abstract, and as such have no actual subject or representational form, they all come from the idea and challenge that we all face, of the potential destruction of our beautiful environment. The shapes and forms, particularly in the small pieces, for me have echoes of sea and sky, rock and sand, light on water

This is ‘Evening walk, Cruit Island’

A large signature piece, on canvas, framed

This is an even larger piece, ‘Due West’

Approximately 150 x250 cm it will make a dramatic statement

These 2 above are ‘Stateside 1’ and ‘Stateside 2’

Each 120cm square on canvas

Why on earth would I attempt to paint landscapes when you can get photos like these?
Admittedly the saturation is high and the pixels are visible
This sort of thing is a rich source for abstraction, combined with the sharp hail on my nose and my wet feet from the incoming tide


And Junos disappointment at the orange fishing float not being a ball (too hard too heavy) is just icing on the cake
Its February tomorrow, Spring will soon be here
Keep warm, be safe 🙂
