    Hello and welcome to my Blog...






    This week I am preparing 10 paintings for a solo show


    in Louth Riverhead Theatre Gallery, Lincolnshire.





    The paintings will be on display from 


    Tuesday 3 September until the end of the month.


    More details will be posted nearer the time.  






    The title of the show is...




     Oil paintings of Lincolnshire in the Wild



    A selection of oil paintings about

     wild places in Lincolnshire 

    from the Coast to the Wolds.  

    Created in my Studio, 

    these abstractions rekindle 

    fleeting memories as I work.  

     This is a journey beyond reality; 

    an imaginative ‘sense of place’.  


    It has been fun to make this selection 

    as I wanted to have a group of paintings 

    which reflect my love of the wild.  

     I feel happiest when I am surrounded 

    by nature in its relaxed sense.  


    Outside my studio door



    It’s all in the paint.

    My pictures are made from marks...

    mostly spontaneous and free.  

     As I work, the shapes and colours begin 

    to form ‘abstract landscapes’.  

      The re-kindling of memories comes 

    from this painting process.  


    Sometimes the painting is purely 

    about colours and shapes...



    Although there isn’t any direct reference 

    to the landscape, the colours are 

    around me in my garden.


    I have a liking for industrial shapes too...

    Skyline shapes, cranes and 

    chimneys sometimes appear.

    They are imaginary ones here.


    This picture has a resemblance of a steelworks.

    As a child I remember my father taking 

    me at night to Scunthorpe Steelworks 

    and watching the red hot slag 

    tipping from the little rail trucks. 


    Moving on.

    My painting is always evolving.  

    This is a recent one...

    making the bright marks centre of attention.

    Oil paint has been used for the red swirl.  

    Oil pastels were also used for rubbing on marks   

    It was purely fun.

    Three more pictures followed...

    Also using oil pastels and oil paint 

    squeezed straight from the tube.  


    Random marks and shapes emerged.

    They all have a similar theme.




    Moving on again.

    This week the weather has changed.  

    Suddenly it feels like autumn.

    Oddly, my painting changed at the 

    same time although not deliberately.

    These two pictures have a 

    definite autumn colour palette.

    A journey through the year in my studio.

    Where to next?  Adventure awaits.


    Here is a quote from Nicholas Wilton...

    “In art often you have to start before

    you know where you are going.

    There are no roadmaps for each of our


    creative paths if they are truly our own”.



    Until next time...
