Description

A Slice of Heaven is a green English landscape painting of a riverbank in spring with lacy white wildflowers and deer. On the left riverbank can be seen cow parsley white flowers almost dancing out of the painting, and on the right riverbank a delicate deer stands watching us in interest as deer do. Behind her are two more female deer waiting to take flight if their leader does so. The edges of the painting are blurred to give the feeling of the scenery floating out from the centre the canvas. I like this effect as it gives you a tantalising glimpse of an English springtime landscape suddenly appearing. The colours are mostly shades of green and white. It was inspired, as many of my recent paintings have been, by long walks along Sussex riverbanks. This one particular piece of riverbank is most like the river Rother near Salehurst TN32 5PJ. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, dark blue edges, ready to hang, no frame needed.
