By the wayside Throughout the day changes of light and darkness affect our visual and sensual awareness. Our perception of nature constantly varies, a never-ending source of inspiration. When walking the dog, a walk in the park or a stroll down town, we daily confront the world about us. Sensitive to fleeting impressions and observations, the artist, within the framework his of artistic criteria, strives to develop new artworks from ideas stimulated by nature, by what he or she sees.The current series of paintings is a direct result of these observations whilst walking through the country lanes, through fields of wheat, barley, rape or maize that change and grow till harvest leaves the field bare, ready for the next cycle of crops to reveal itself. Framed all the time by trees and plants along the path between the land and the sky.
