So it’s lockdown again, but let’s remain positive and use this time to think about buying art. There could not be a better time to search for art online, whether for new interesting artists, your favourite artists or via art galleries. We are all doing our best to make it easy for you to buy directly or online, to advise on choices, packaging, and postage.
So much more time is being spent at home so let’s not stare at blank walls! Art can bring so much atmosphere and conversation to a room, it becomes your decoration and your personal feature in your home. I have been lucky enough to have had some wonderful private commissions and it has been a joy to see these works go to their new owner’s homes and grace their walls, becoming one of the most important parts of the home.
One of my favourites was ‘Husbands’ – This was a commission for a couple who’d been together for over 20 years and who had recently got married, hence the title. I really enjoyed doing this one because it was a brilliant composition and technically challenging and because it was an opportunity to defy bigots and define myself as an enemy of prejudice.
Obviously, commissioning works can be expensive and during these times impractical but there are so many other paintings to buy which can still portray personal moments of reflection, happiness or simply moments in time. My art has evolved from my passions, my hobbies and from what I see and appreciate, when I walk each day. Portraits such as ‘The Boy’ and ‘Niki’ seem very fitting in these times, compositions of wistful thoughts, reflective moments in time, something many of us may be experiencing at the moment.
A painting tells a story, creates a mood, brings a room alive – now is the perfect time to treat yourself or buy the perfect Christmas gift for someone.
