White Mountain, 2013
I used oil paints. When you look at this painting, and you walk up to the top of a mountain, how do you feel? Do you find yourself reaching for that goal in your life? If so, what would be your goal if you reached the top of the mountain? Would it be wanting to change the world for all humanity, or change yourself into a respected being, to treat your earth with respect?
Black Mountain, 2013
A feeling of stillness fills the air, a feeling that you’ve been at this island before.
When you look at the painting, you feel a closeness to nature like riding horseback, and a feeling that you’ve been there in your past life. It takes you to mythical lands and landscapes. Arcadia, a majestic, magical landscape.
Where I’d love to be, in the middle of nowhere, far from the madding crowd.
Waterfall near one Tree
Tree overlooking a waterfall and wildflower meadow. If more farmers gave land over to wildflower meadows, there would more wildlife and invertebrates, preserving the diversity of species.
Rough Sea, 2013
Almost like white horses, waves make patterns in the ocean. Seagulls ride the currents of the air.
Within mysterious darkness and light, we have to embrace a light and dark side within us.
A calm ocean floats a boat to shore, or to new places never seen before.
Sailing on the Sea, 2013
In a windsail boat, it’s how we should travel, rather than using diesel all the time. Everything could be fairtrade, and people could get a decent wage for what they grow, if we got back into windsail boats, windsail ships. The sea would be a lot cleaner without the diesel. The painting represents the freedom to travel in an environmentally sensitive way.
Three Trees, 2013
Mist in the background, sun shining through, trees standing tall, feel how proud they are when they are standing tall, deep-rooted in the earth. It’s how we should be.
St. Michael’s Mount
This mountain, connected to the Cornish mainland by a narrow strip of land that disappears at high tide, occupies a lay line criss-crossing St. Michael’s line and St. Mary’s line in the Isles of Scilly. There is also an ancient forest, 6,000 years old, that can be seen at low tide. The lion refers to Rastafarian doctrine, and to Heile Selassi’s visit to Cornwall in the1950s.
Two trees, overlooking a lake, sun shining through. What does this make you feel? Does it create a peace within you? An ideal spot for meditation, and finding yourself.
Moon Angels Guarding the Sea
These two angels represent the tide coming in and the tide going out.
The green edge represents the forest. The lake is dark blue, and the rain is above.
The paint going across happened naturally, like rain falling in the rainforest. We should preserve the rainforest and our tree friends.
