Journey’s End: “The Golden Eye of the Supreme”.
The inspiration for these paintings finds me seeking to break free of former ideas and concepts . “ Miles Beyond “ (2) was a breakthrough . Inspired by the space and freedom found in the intricate music I discovered the “zen calligraphy” that echoes through nature . Branches , star clusters, bird flight , winding rivers and horizons , leaf and stalk shapes. They are all around but we often miss their beauty and message.
Good news from Finland . All paintings have arrived safe and sound . Excellent service from T.N.T. Express .
In the mean time my thoughts turn to artwork for Jim Ghedi’s new album and also a rather exciting experiment .More Later !
All but one piece now winging their way to Finland . Prints and cards all done , thank you Billy Bye!
12 pieces plus a surprise . All titles interconnected with “the Red Thread between nothingness and eternity” and The Mahavishnu Orchestra’s “Birds of Fire ” album .

I am fascinated by the relationship and energy found between the sky and the land and am seeking to express this interaction in abstract impressionism and other forms. Contact the artist about the Preview evening.

We had a few days on the amazing North East coastline. Apart of the country steeped in spiritual history .You can feel it in the air .Out on Lindisfarne the silence is beautiful.Very inspiring.
Angus Crockett has a project “Portraits of Derbyshire Artists” . I had a lovely couple of hours with this talented photographer . The results were very flattering. Thanks Angus!
