A Lingering Magic is a 36x36inches oil painting on canvas of an autumn woodland walk. The painting shows a view past colourful autumn trees to a pond on the left where the light through the trees highlights a swallow skimming insects above the surface of the pond. The painting was begun last October after a walk I took in the Lewes area of Sussex. It had been raining for weeks and the Ouse valley was flooded with lots of extra ponds and streams having formed. The swallow was a surprise as she should have left for Africa but maybe she was happy to stay a little longer. She is my lingering magic. I like paintings that transport me to lovely places when I look at them. This one takes me somewhere magical – hence the title. The painting is ready to hang and the edges are dark purple. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb4LEDyb32E

I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.
My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day.
I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me.
I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.
All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.
My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
