“Blue Like the Summer” is an ethereal abstract seascape oil painting 50cm x 50cm (20 x 20 inches) on 4cm (1.5 inch) deep canvas. Inspired by the silver horizon on the sea in Hastings on a beautiful Spring day when the sea was a magical blue colour. It’s titled from “Cold and Blue” by The Redlands Palomino Company song. It's painted in shades of blue and white with a metallic silver stripe on the horizon. The paint is blended and has a satin sheen. The painting continues around the sides of the canvas and it is signed on the back. It is ready to hang and come with a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity. Please note the in situ images are not to scale but hopefully they give a good idea of how the painting will look in a modern interior.

I am an abstract painter inspired by nature and music. The sea provides me with powerful inspiration and I am endlessly fascinated with the horizon and it's symbolism. I paint my abstract seascapes from memory rather than life and I want to evoke a sense of place however abstract the work becomes. My paintings are influenced by the British Coastline, particularly Sussex and Cornwall and I aim to express the timeless feeling of calm experienced when staring at the sea. Lately I have been concerned with minimalism in my work and have tried to capture a stillness that I have experienced during lockdown. This Summer I have been mesmerised by light on the horizon and have painted a series of seascapes depicting this, some of which have turned out quite simple and abstract. Sometimes my pantings turn out to be more figurative. I often paint with my hands and with sponges rather then brushes. I paint with oil on canvas and usually use the paint straight from the tube and mix it on the canvas with my fingers. I love bright pure colour and want my paintings to be vivid and alive. I often like to take an idea and see how it travels across a series of canvases, each one evolving into something new. Recently I painted 10 paintings from the memory of one incredible sunset in Cornwall, and they were all different. Music is integral to my work and my paintings are always named from song titles and lyrics. I always listen to music to get me in the zone when painting and feel that this has a strong influence on the finished work. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of dreamy folk music like Johnny Flynn, John Martyn and Fairport Convention with Sandy Denny. I think this contributes to the ethereal yet vivid quality of the paintings. I often get lost in the music and don’t realise where the time goes! Lyrics often jump out at me when I'm painting and seem to fit the artwork perfectly. I feel that a snippet of a song lyric as a title gives the painting extra depth. Recently I’ve chosen song lyrics from Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Pink Floyd and David Bowie amongst others to title my paintings. I’m very lucky to be doing what I’ve always wanted to do. I loved drawing and painting as a child and always wanted to be an artist when I grew up. Looking back on my school reports my teachers reinforced this by saying that art was all I was interested in.
