Distant Memory – a semi abstract landscape (Large)

£1,300.00

40 x 40 x 1.5 inches original oil painting of a large semi abstract landscape. A woman sits by a lake wearing a yellow dress with a dog beside her. There is a lake and trees and forests or mountains beyond and poppies and wildflowers all around. It was inspired by a fragment of a dream that I get sometimes where I live in a cabin by a lake with dogs and cats and animals for company and the scent of wild flowers. It was an experiment trying to paint it as it was indistinct which is why the painting is slightly strange. I am pleased with it though as it does help me recall this dream which was probably from another lifetime. I like the way it is both orderly and chaotic at the same time – just like memories and dreams themselves are.

[caption id="attachment_227430" align="alignnone" width="358"] sdr[/caption] I am a professional artist based in Sussex, England and I paint large semi-abstract original landscapes, seascapes, animal and bird inspired paintings in oil on canvas. My painting style is a fusion of abstract, traditional, expressionist, impressionist, and a little art nouveau. Most of my paintings are also available as prints on paper or canvas. Art is a communication form. Many artists don’t know what they are trying to communicate and so try lots of different things before finding out. Probably most of us do. Personally, it took me until I was 54 before I found out what the hell I was trying to communicate and it turned out to be rather simple. I am trying to capture a tiny part of the magic I experience in looking at nature, so that I can keep a bit it of it forever by fixing it as a painting on a canvas. I get inspiration for these images by various means but the best one of all is by walking and looking. I like to print pub walks off of the internet for different areas of South East England and simply go and explore. The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun. My ultimate goal with my painting is to one day paint something so captivating that I will not be able to look away. Then I want to disappear into it and find all the things that really ought to be there. It may or may not ever happen but it is a great carrot to my donkey...
