Art does not reflect what is seen, rather it makes the hidden visible.Paul Klee

These small abstracts are a continuation of what appears to be becoming a series of sunrises with windows — beginning with my two recent paintings — and although ‘Departure’ and ‘Arrival’ are available separately, I think they look even better as a diptych.

There’s something about a sunrise

‘Changing Planes’ — acrylic on canvas, 355 x 460 mm. Available.

Whatever happens next, it won’t be what you expected.
If it is what you expected, it isn’t what’s happening next.”

“Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative work instead of business, passion instead of foolery, finds no home in this trivial world of ours.”

Hermann Hesse

Treetop family home

Treetop family home. Open-plan. Great views. — acrylic on canvas, 405 x 405 mm, 2019. Available.

My latest six-word painting is more ‘rough art’ rather than fine art. It has lots of texture and touches of iridescent white and shiny gold (which aren’t really showing up in the photos). The nest wasn’t part of the original concept but just sort of appeared while I was working on the composition. Painting this reminded me that when I was very young, I wanted to sleep in the branches of our walnut tree, underneath the stars. Who am I kidding? I still do.
