I just keep playing with this! I know the white cloud is now just too white but I kinda like that. 

Rain and clouds (2015) oil on canvas

Finished this today, well I think I have, I could continue to build the form in the clouds, but may remove the energy.

Amesbury Archer (2015) oil on canvas 60”x40"

The Archer reminds us of the inevitable passage of time, the objects arrest time and give a sense of the accumulated bric-a-brac of life. We glimpse into an enduring moonlit ocean and a fragile alpine flower both a metaphor for the transience of earthly things and indicate the Archers journey.

Ready to deliver for the next exhibition ‘Conversation with the Collection’ at Salisbury Muesum.
