Lost in the light is a 40x40x1.5 inches large semi abstract oil painting in golden yellow and purple showing stags and deer in the light of a sunset. A herd of deer stand silhouetted in a forest clearing where golden autumn light shines through the trees behind them distorting their shapes. It is more abstract than my usual style but I quite like it as it was a good capture of how things actually look to me when I take my glasses off. I like the fact that I can still recognize what I am seeing but it is blurred and shimmering and more other worldly somehow. This painting was a bit of a wrestling match as has been over painted a few times in my quest to get it how I wanted it. However, this means it has lots of lovely thick paint and texture and has given it a presence it would not have had otherwise! It is painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang.

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.
