Oil on Canvous (910mmx610mm)

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.

‘a Way to Go’

'a Way to Go'‘a Way to go’ is an oil painting I have recently completed and was inspired by a walk I did a few years ago in the lake district up to Grisledale Pike.

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.

New art direction

While I was sat in my studio the other day I looked out my window to the street and shops down below, people were rushing around, heads down, head phones in, talking on the phone, busy walking fast from one shop to another. I then looked behind me at the painting of the lack district I had been working on and became absorbed in the difference I felt looking at the painting to looking at the busy street, I felt stillness. How often do we get to be still in this new digital world?

This moment has inspired me into a new creative project:

Glance. Snap. Capture. Send. Delete. Empty. Replace.
