Summer Roaring

– an abstract summer meadow painting

A large 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches semi abstract landscape painting of an English flower meadow. This painting shows a view across red poppies, buttercups and wildflowers. A path goes though them towards a gap in the trees behind them. It is an expression of the allure that countryside walking has where you always wonder what is in the next field or beyond the woodland. The flowers and trees are abstract in style but give the idea of summer flowers and grasses in all their enthusiasm to grow and seed as fast as they can. I tried to sum up meadow walking in this painting and in abstract style as it sits in my memory like that rather than botanically accurate details. It is another in a long series of my ‘memory impressionism’ paintings. 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 The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun.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...
