Green Forest Calling (Large)


– A large green painting of a path through a green forest in Sussex in Springtime

Green Forest Calling is a 30x40x1.5 inches tall green painting of a path through a green forest in Sussex in springtime. It was painted after a walk I took near Hartfield in late May. The bluebells were still out and the trees were bright green lush in every shade from yellow, to gold to emerald green. This particular patch of forest has very tall trees but well spaced so it is very like walking through a cathedral with stained glass green windows. The way out of the wood looked bright white as a field of white cow parsley was just beyond it and that added to the magic quality of the walk. I am often nervous in woods and forests as I get lost very easily and because some of them have a scary atmosphere. This wood though, is a favourite of mine as it is welcoming and it likes me. I imagine the spirits of this forest are kind ones. The painting is semi abstract in style and is on wide edge canvas, white edges, no frame needed, ready to hang on the wall.

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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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