Light the Night on Fire


“Light the Night on Fire” is an ethereal abstract sunset oil painting 40x40cm (16×16 inches) on a 2cm (0.5 inch) deep canvas. Painted after watching the sunset on the Lizard in Cornwall. The title is from the folk song “Dirty Old Town.

It’s painted in black, grey, yellow and neon pink. The paint is layered and blended and the texture of the surface of the canvas has a soft quality almost like suede. The sides of the artwork are painted white and it is signed on the back. It’s ready to hang and comes with a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity. 

When I despatch a painting I always send a personalised card and a complimentary set of 3 hand made greetings cards as a thank you. Shipping is free in the UK and very quick, the painting should arrive within 48 hours of despatch and I’ll let you know the tracking number so that you can follow the delivery.

(Please note the in situ images are not to scale but hopefully they give an good idea of how the painting will look in a modern interior.)

Julia Everett

  I am an abstract painter inspired by nature and music, particularly land and sea. My latest paintings are abstract sunsets using colour to express light reflecting onto water.   I always listen to music when painting and feel that this has a strong influence on the finished work. I’ve chosen song lyrics from Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Pink Floyd and David Bowie amongst others to title my paintings. I feel that a snippet of a song lyric as a title gives the painting extra depth. Lyrics often jump out at me when I'm painting and seem to fit the artwork perfectly!   Many of my paintings are inspired by light on water I have always loved the sea and my childhood holidays were spent in a caravan in Wales, where we spent a lot of time on beautiful windswept beaches looking at the ocean and sheltering from the British Summer. I went to college in Brighton to do my BA in Fine Art, where my love of the sea grew and I now try and spend as much free time as I can contemplating the coast, despite living in London! The Welsh coastline is still very special to me, as is Cornwall, which is now one of my favourite places in the whole world to visit and watch the light change on the sea.  Many of my paintings are inspired by Prussia Cove in the wild West of Cornwall, a place I return to year after year.   When I despatch a painting I always send a personalised card and a complimentary set of 3 hand made greetings cards as a thank you. Shipping is very quick and the painting should arrive within 48 hours of despatch. If you live within the M25, personal same day delivery is possible. I can also personally deliver the painting at a pre arranged time that suits, if you live within 50 miles of London. If you are thinking of purchasing a painting for a gift and you'd like me to write a personalised gift card to go with it,  please let me know who it's to and what occasion it is, and anything particular you'd like me to say and I'll be happy to include it with the painting.
