Inspired from the amazing sunset sky, as the days draws to a close a splash of wonderful colour fills the sky, it reminds me so much of the holy spirit and how through the spirit moving in our lives we display the glory of God.
Inspired by my trip to northen Iraland at the end of last summer. I was captivated by the magnificent spender of these 300 year old beech trees. I have always been draw to natures natural sculptures and the intertwining of the branches contrasted by the strait smooth road moved me to paint them. I have spent three months working on ‘The Dark Hedges’ an oil painting on canvas 60cmx90cm.
Starting the new year off with a cold day at the studio working on the ‘Dark hedges’, hopping to get it compleat this month…
Oil painting on canvous 60x90cm
I started working on this after being inspired by an early Morning sunrise in my backgarden in May. While I watched the sunrise I felt an overwhellming sence of Gods peace and stillness. The title of the work is from phillipans 4:9.
This has been a work in progress since January, after much studies and painting & repainting this is the compleated piece. It is a sunset look over the flood banck towards the River Ouse at Rawclif Medows.
Isaiah 60:1-2 (NIV)
Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
2 See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.

The painting has been the outcome of a months work, in which I have been exploring the theme of going on a journey, by removing all the clutter of modern living and getting out into nature. The detail in the path, focuses the viewers initial attention, proceeding then to continue the viewers gaze though out the image, to create a feeling of stillness.
