abstracts abstracts Untitled1 "Untitled1" Acrylic on canvas board, A3 available for 100 pounds (UK only). 37955713 Vibrato "Vibrato" Original acrylic on box canvas, 75cm x 100cm. sold. Painted during an abstract painting retreat in Gardenstown on Scotland's Moray Firth. I had gone to the beach to sit and eat my lunch and I watched a heron stalk for food among the rock pools. After a few minutes it straightened up and swooped past me on its way back up to the cliffs. When I got back to the studio I painted this abstract in a single session. That night I took home a biography of the abstract artist Patrick Heron whose work was striking a chord with me. It was only then that I made a connection with his name and my lunchtime wildlife encounter. It also struck me that my painting had certain heron-like shapes contained in its form. Unofficially I began to call it my 'Two Herons' painting though I leave the analysis of 'what it is' to you the viewer. Rotate it round, turn it upside down if you want. High quality prints available via the 'prints' link. 36861180 Flirt "Flirt" Acrylic on canvas, 75cm x 100cm sold. 192680561 Suspense "Suspense" Original acrylic on canvas board, 60cm x 85cm available for 250 pounds (UK only). The third of my Gardenstown abstracts.
