                       "Eight Arch Bridge, Stackpole"


    Fresh water flowing through a series of lily ponds, through the beach to the sea. The beautiful Stackpole Estate nature reserve is home to owls and otters, nesting swans and of course thousands of water lillies. I'm hoping for another restorative visit very soon.


    A painting doesn’t reveal itself all at once (to the painter or the viewer) but reflects, bit by bit, unfolding recognition. The paint is applied as a feeling,  the feeling becomes a thought, and thought takes me to the place and back to the painting.


    The greatest joy for me is to put paint on the canvas; that first initial brushstroke, full of excitement and optimism. My second greatest joy is have somebody look at the painting and say “I know that place, I recognise that feeling, I know where you were, in your heart when you painted this. I know where you were and what you were feeling right there, right then, and I like it.”

    That’s the essence of painting for me; the communication between the viewer and the artist, and that’s a rare moment. And that is something to celebrate.


    My paintings are made up of many successive, almost transparent, but highly pigmented layers of paint, with a final layer of thinly applied, almost dry opaque paint, which has the effect of partially revealing under-layers.
