📍Crafted in Forest Row, East Sussex
Destiny unfolds is a wide panoramic oil painting in a vibrant, colourful, magical realism style of two kingfishers by a river. From the left we see a beautiful kingfisher rising out of the water scattering droplets of lines of energy as she flies upwards towards her mate. To the left we see the male and in between the two birds we see the river and water lilies and the suggestion of many colourful semi-abstract flowers and energy lines radiating outwards. I am always inspired by kingfishers as I see them so rarely but am always captivated by the flashes of blue and orange when lucky enough to spot them on my river walks along the Ouse or the Adur or the Medway rivers in Sussex. I wish there were more of them and so I have created a painting which is trying to magic more of them into existence by sheer desire to have it so (hence the title). Like many of my paintings it balances realism with semi-abstract as I find those things play off of each-other quite well and allow the viewer to add their own story to the one I have started. It is 48x24x1.5 inches oil on canvas and is ready to hang as it is with no frame needed.
