55 x 55 x 2 inches very large oil painting on canvas of a dark dark forest path. The outer parts of the painting are very dark greens, blues and purples but as you walk the path towards the way out of the woods it becomes brighter with greens, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and blues and bright whites. To the left of the exit a very small stag can be seen leading the way. He is the only life form in the painting which I painted to be deliberately slightly scary but at the same time promising escape. Deer are traditionally spirit guides so it is fitting he is the one leading us out. This a very large painting and will create real impact in a large space. It has taken me months of layering to create this artwork. The paint is thick and very textured which definitely adds to the menacing darkness of the trees whilst the contrast against the bright colours adds the hope. I think most people are looking for answers to things. This painting is my attempt to put them there - or at least the hope that they will arrive where they need to be eventually. Painted on deep edge canvas - dark edges, no frame needed.

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.
