Italian scene







I am now concentrating on a series of landscapes, mostly of the British countryside. On my return to England in 2006,
from 20 years of living in America, I was quite concerned to see large areas of the countryside disappearing under creeping urbanisation.
It is consoling to paint scenery as I would wish it to be, even though it will probably continue to be covered in concrete!
Also, having been influenced by the brilliant blue skies of Texas and Connecticut, I have transposed these into my paintings, so that the gloomy skies of England are replaced by a perpetual calming blue which makes the soul sing and cheers the spirit!
