'Summer Ocean' and 'Autumn Leaves' are hanging with 'Winter Fireplace' now.
This is the third of this series of four. Each season has it's own special joy for me, these works are representations of those joys.
My favourite fireplace was the open fireplace at my childhood holiday home, so many special memories with so many people. Hours of fast scrabble and looking though old Country Life and Boating magazines whilst watching the sea roll in. This fireplace would 'pop' and crackle regularly and the woollen rug would often smoulder from the embers. These works remind me of that old shag pile rug.
'Winter Fireplace' represents the coal, ash and simmering flames at the end of those magnificent nights in my holiday home.
