Golden Forest Hidden Unicorn

£1,500.00

A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract landscape painting of a magical golden tinged forest. This painting is art nouveau and abstract in style and shows a view though trees to the light behind them. The trees are golden, green, lilac and wine coloured. Hidden between two of them is a small white horse who looks back over her shoulder at us, wondering if we will follow. I walk alot in forests and they fascinate me as they scare me but intrigue me at the same time. There is a different atmosphere in any forest or woodland you enter and I often feel I am being watched in them. Probably because I am. Usually by deer or birds but sometimes perhaps by something more magical. The painting was made with thick and blended paint and was glazed with golden yellow once dry to give the effect of sunlight. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed.

[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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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...
