This painting was first started the day Storm Eunice was hitting the UK. I was safe and warm in my studio, after having a wonderful invigorating walk along Exmouth beach!
Andre Rieu was my choice of music that afternoon, and one particular piece of music swept me away, so I just kept playing it…and this painting was created to that piece of music…’Gabriel’s Oboe’.
When the painting was finished, I was quite emotional, from an artist’s point of view.
Each day since, the light has come through my studio window, and the colours change and create a different sense of calm! How can a Storm be calming I thought… but it is a unique piece of art.
Even on a dull day , the colours deepen and a fantastic sense of depth and grounding can be felt. Only when you see this painting will you get the wonderful sense of what a storm is all about.
Today I have sold ‘Gabriels Oboe’. It is the only one. There are no prints, they could not be reproduced.
The colours could not be matched.
I could choose not to sell the painting, but I am so glad that the person who has bought it, will also find the joy of my ‘Gabriel’s Storm’
