Abstract landscape paintings based on natural and urban environments

Forest interiors revisited
Studies in line and form


The way we interact with our environment influences the way we see things and frame the things we see. We take insubstantial, fragmented images and fill them out to make complete narratives.

It is this tension between the negative space, what is withheld from the frame of the painting and what is suggested that engages the viewer in a conversation with my work. I am showing part of a picture or world which exists beyond the realm of the canvas in the mind of the viewer. This conversation between the viewer and the painting, between description and abstraction is the most vital element of my painting.

Parts of paintings. Today allotment gardens have been reopened. I’m so delighted. They serve so many purposes . A source of food , inspiration , frustration and frustration release. There’s something incredibly satisfying in seen the results of a few hours of weeding not to mention the growth of plants whose seeds you’ve saved from another year . At the same time there is something so incredibly aggravating when some rodents , voles , rabbits , groundhogs and rats decimate your hard work . Or when the weather doesn’t cooperate and give you enough heat units to have your plants reach fruition . I think of gardening as an act of faith and hope and resolve ... now if my new shovel arrives I will once again renew the pursuit of an orderly garden . (My first unachievable goal ) #artistsgarden #inspiration #partsofpaintings #gardenpainting #newyear ...
