2 - TRANSFORMATION - THE BUTTERFLIES - 2000
Original Painting: 5ft Square (150cm x 150cm) Indian Inks, Gouche and Gold Leaf on Paper. Original Painting
This dramatic & explosive design was originally conceived in the days after a large peacock butterfly flew through the studio window of an old cottage in the spring of the year 2000AD. The circumstances surrounding this gentle visitation were nothing less than miraculous. The butterfly appears from within dusty sunbeam flying in a spiral to land in the centre of a 5ft blank canvas and then opened and closed its wings 3 times before flying back up the sunbeam and on its way. This is a classical tale of artists block and the butterfly ended over a year of creative stagnation. This beautiful painting knotted in gold and set against ultramarine blue and purple that raises the ornament and illuminates the detail in this stunning do-decagon mandala wheel.

3 - PAVO CRISTATUS - THE PEACOCK - 2005
Original Painting: 4.5ft Square (133cm x 133cm) Acrylics with Gold Leaf on Canvas.
Pavo Cristatus (The Peacock) 53" x 53" mixed media of inks and acrylics with gold leaf on cotton duck canvas. In 2006 the new canvas was primed and ready. I needed inspiration so that afternoon a good friend and I decided to take a Sunday circular walk up to Wolstonbury Hill from Hurstpierpoint Village in East Sussex. On returning to my car and to my complete astonishment a clean and shiny Peacock feather lay just under the drivers door. I had already come upon a stunning and rare Kestrel feather just 30 minutes earlier. Unbeknown to me one Peacock male had just recently escaped his Stately Home. He had made home on the roof of a brand new garden conservatory recently constructed in the village. I was lost for words knowing already that the Peacock was a great Solar/Sun/Son symbol as well as being the national bird of India and associated with Goddess Lakshimi also symbolic of the all-seeing-eyes of both Greek & Roman mythology and representing Royalty, Vision and Spiritual Awakening. Pavo Cristatus is the Latin for Peacock and this work took about a year to complete

5 - VISITATION - CIRCLES & SQUARES - 2013 (2018)
Original Painting 32" x 32" (81cm x 81cm) mixed media of oils over acrylics with gold leaf on board.
Have you ever visited a Crop-Circle and rested in the formation for a few hours and suddenly felt a cool cool wind across the back of your neck on a warm summers day? Well yes I was tickled by something fantastical when I was loitering in the Amesbury Squared Circle in Wiltshire on 3rd of August 2013. It was a couple of days after it's (unnoticed) creation right next to Stonehenge. The crowds had subsided. Sure enough I got touched and you can see 4 dudes in the 4 corners descending in the twilight. I painted this as a celebration of 'things like that' later that summer but only recently finished.
