I paint expressionistic landscapes and abstracts, hopefully communicating my love and passion for specific places. These places include my wonderful coastal village in Fife, the Forth Bridges, Milan, Venice, Málaga and Tyneside. My relationship with Tyneside arises from responses during my own travels plus, more importantly, from my love for my daughter and her family who live in Whitley Bay. This artwork, ‘Tyne Sunset’ was painted for them. I also paint murals with love for my son and his family. I wish this selected painting to bring joy to the viewer. I hope the love I felt while creating is communicated.
