Memory of Spring is a 40x40x1.5 inches large semi abstract oil painting of an English bluebell wood in springtime. It was inspired by the bluebells, wildflowers and pink blossom you see in patches of woodland around Sussex in April and May every year. Although it is contemporary in painting style, it still hints quite well at the flowers and yellow green saplings and trees of spring. It was painted from memory, as most of my landscapes are, as that tends to distill the composition and details right down to simplicities making the feeling of the painting and the magical element of forests and trees more prevalent than the botanical details. I love the fairy tale ancient landscapes of England and the magic quality you can find in forest clearings and fields and I never tire of trying to capture this fascination in the paintings that I make. The painting has white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed.
