The Abstract Question

Abstract painting is not as easy as it looks! This painting is not really a abstract more like random marks of paint,but that is another name for abstract.

I see woods here but with perhaps a lady in green, but you looking at this now may see different things,

A lot depends where you are in life perhaps and what  stage you are at in your Artists journey

Autumn Wonder

This time of year the sun is low in the sky and the afternoon especially so but as the sun sinks beneath the horizon in the woods its rays catch a unkown object perhaps a forgotten fence post and the shape of a leaf .

The reds and the golds mixing in with thr red of the setting sun.

Here in the U.K the clocks go back so from tomorrow  even darker mornings

Railway Sleeper Studies (Photos)

Railway sleepers standing in a row…

A different perspective like a rail  road but joined up !….

Looking for patterns,,,hmm not much here…

A bit more interesting…

Like these markings across three sleepers…

Nice staines effect….

A bit of Nature dangling…!!!

lets leave them there, though there seemed some gaps and wonder if people have been taking them away?

The Horse Riders

Been having a real to and frow with this painting. Do not think its quite finished It keeps changing every time  I look at it!

Do you leave well alone and let it breath or a bit more fiddle?

The age old question of knowing when to stop!

Oh and should these horse riders wear their hats,health and safety you know! But then again i am the artists,so…

Oh and this painting has al ot of texture already  built up so is almost at its end anyway!

Cuts Cuts and more Cuts: Uncertain Times

I am not posting a image for this post as it is rather a thoughtful one . I hope you will bear with me, my art bubble will resume  one I have said a few things here.

The current spending review which was annouced by the Coalition Government here in the Uk,still has consequences none of which we can know,

I worry very much for the future

of our country in these uncertain times and am concerned about the Social Equilibrium of our society especially after seeing this

There is so much uncertainty and many wrong decisions will be made full of consequence

. A nuclear Submarine ran agroud off the Isle of Sky but was pulled off the shingle by a tug,this tug was one of three that are to be scrapped.

The Forestry Commission is going about a massive upheaval bits to be sold off with unknown consequence to our Landscape  especially the forests and the trees.

A 10% reductiion in Flood defences, at a time when the seas are rising seems madness,

Do not get me wrong I know the deficit has to be tackled but I am not convinced this is the right way

I was inspired to put some of my thoughts here by this Blog post  by Chrissy Do take time to read a personal consequence of cuts

Thanks for reading normal images will resume and I will continue to paint whatever!

Also we do not yet know of results of Art Spending cuts so maybe another post there

Coast Defences

On the local bit of Chichester Harbour  the railway sleepers from the Old Hayling Billy Line were used to protect the shore from erosion and of course flooding.

This painting is a way of looking at this and may become part of a series or even just painted a but larger this is only about 10ins by 8
