"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.
