praise tree in red
“Praise Tree in Red”, 41x30cm (16″x13″), Oil on Canvas, for sale £175

I did this painting in 2005.

It explores impressionistic and expressionistic techniques of separating colours and giving a sense of intensity.
I call this technique “heightened realism”.

I’m trying to capture the way that nature “bursts forth” with vitality, as if it were praising God, hence its name.

I found the prophet Isaiah’s words resonating: “the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing”.

Celestial Trees

This painting is an attempt to capture the mysterious, ethereal nature of trees and the calming influence they have on our lives.

I’ve half sculpted, half-painted a thick gesso underneath the paint to make the trees and branches stand out.

I’ve tried to capture the way the branches connect at the top to form a sort of cathedral-like corridor that draws the eye heavenward.

I’m inspired by the way trees communicate with each other through their roots and have connected them as well.

There is a pattern running throughout the universe containing, I believe, a divine consciousness. We see in recent discoveries in quantum physics that the omniscient God of the Bible is real and alive today as He ever has been.

Prints 2016-10
“Chasing the Wind 3”, Oil on Canvas, 30x25cm, for sale £60

I like the feelings of freedom and imagination associated with wildflower meadows. To me these cosmos flowers are a symbol of childlike faith but also the fragility and temporal nature of life.
