Selected Paintings

I no longer paint large works and I no longer sell paintings. I still do small landscapes for my own enjoyment. Below are examples of my large works, almost all of which have been sold or given away.

(Below) Insight, 24 x 18, Acrylic on board.

The graceful curtains give a gauzy cover to the chatoic world behind. The style derives from Art Deco and the ball is the "thing-but-not-a-thing" motif that I have been exploring in my recent work.

(Below) WINTER SUN, 18 x 24, Acrylic on board.

The sun shines weakly through the cold winter air, the moisture refracting the light and rendering everything slightly indistinct. (Some metalic paint; painting is richer than photo.)

The ball as "thing-but-not-a-thing" is seen as part shadow, part thing against a rough wall,

(Below) RISK, 24 x 18, Acrylic on board.

The ball is delicately balanced on the crossed wires. Will it fall or remain balanced? And, what will be the consequences of falling or staying? What lies below the edge of the picture? Are the pylons so tall that the falling ball will perish?
