  • ABOUT THIS PAINTING

    This is an original, one off, abstract painting on canvas ready to hang on your beautiful wall.

    This artwork is inspired by the childhood memories of long drives back home to our family farm where I grew up. The long drive taking our journeys into the evening. Watching the lines of lights on the horizon and along and over the sides hills. The curves and dips in the road and headlights coming towards us. All the feelings of these things and knowing that we were nearly home to safety, comfort and the warmth of our home. A magical time.

    The artwork is a carry on from my ‘Nocturnal Cluster’ series continues explores the patterns of glowing light caught in fleeting moments, and joy more recent study of light patterns and the glow of life. For me it is all connected and intertwined.

     

    There is much for your eyes to explore here. The dramatic darks and subtle lights in this painting create an otherworldly feel. The background in this painting has a soft focus.

    Like many artists I am somewhat fascinated light. The light and dark. The dramatic elements of an artwork, a glimmer and a glow. I have always been obsessed with light. The literal interpretation and the sublime. ‘The Drive Back to the Farm’ is part of that obsession and observation. It is fun, uplifting, meditative and has multidimensional meanings for each of us.

     

    The circles here relate to the luminosity and patterns made by light in nature. Beams of light and rain on surfaces like glass or a car windscreen. Or the photographic reading of light giving the ‘bokeh’ effect, a soft out-of-focus blur of luminosity. The reference to light is about creating a glow, an incandescence, a moment of illumination, something mysterious, magical and special imbued with special moments of hope in a brighter future. 

     

    I wanted to create something universal, sublime and beautiful for our collective memories of life and nature to ponder.

     

    What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as giving their walls finesse with a splash of colour for years to come.
