CBP...Winter Across the Plain by 

The grass is spreading out across the plain,
Each year, it dies, then flourishes again.
It’s burnt but not destroyed by prairie fires,
When spring winds blow they bring it back to life.
Afar, its scent invades the ancient road,
Its emerald green overruns the ruined town.
Again I see my noble friend depart,
I find I’m crowded full of parting’s feelings
…Bai Juyi

Chinese Brush Painting is all about spareness and suggestibility…a lot is left to the viewer to add…to contemplate….
Man is always under the thrall of nature…
This painting is also about love, loss and partings…the end of a season and the start of another

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    for some reason………….
    .I see a tidal wave approaching and the grasses are submitting to the winds……
    a lot is left to the viewer to add…to contemplate….
    Man is always under the thrall of nature…
