Whilst painting this, I hoped that viewers would remember their own fireworks nights, as I often reminisce about the bonfires we used to have when i was a young boy. It was part of the community spirit and brought people together on firework night and during the lead up to the day. Children made Guy Fawkes dummies, with stuffed sheets and drawn on faces that sat on home made soap box carts, screaming 'penny for the guy please mister'. The tenement houses, brightly lit up looking warm and inviting, whist we'd endured the freezing cold, waiting for the huge bonfire to be lit, that had taken all the local neighbours several weeks to build. I used alkyd oils, for quicker drying time and painted on canvas board.Although based on a real place, it is also imaginative, which i hope adds to the magic of bonfire night.

I often paint a picture as if low flying, this makes it possible to see whole objects at close, or great imagined distances. This is coupled by detail, painted with very fine brushes the thickness of a pin. The rich colours I use are created by building up fine glazes and complementary colours, which create an inner glow that is sometimes seen in old stained glass windows. All these differences make an involved painting that can take many months to complete, but I hope make a distinctive "˜Burrell' that will be enjoyed for a long time to come. I believe we live on a strange and beautiful world - surrounded by a magical universe, and it's easy to forget our luck, when paying the gas and electric bills or stuck in a traffic jam. If my paintings can remind us just a little of the strangeness, beauty and mystery that we are and that surrounds us, then I have done my job.
