An original abstract painting on canvas that is ready to hang on your beautiful wall.

The ‘Nocturnal Cluster’ art series explores the patterns of glowing and blurred light caught in fleeting moments. The atmosphere is moody, soft and out of focus to contrast the surprise of the dazzling light beams.

Medium: Acrylic Polymer Paint on Traditional Gallery Wrapped Canvas

Dimensions: H76cm x W102cm

This artwork is inspired by the feeling and memories of long drives back home through city lights and around the bay. The curves and dips in the road and headlights coming towards us. And all the lights reflected across the water on the bay as we cruise around the coast. Watching the lines of lights on the horizon, the passing ocean liners and cargo ships, moon and the stars reflections on the velvet surface of the sea. All the feelings of these things and the knowing that we are nearly home to safety, comfort and the warmth. But at the same time so pretty you want to just keep driving ‘The Long Way Home’. A magical time.

The circles here relate to the luminosity and patterns made by light in nature. Beams of light and rain on surfaces like glass or a car windscreen. Or the photographic reading of light giving the ‘bokeh’ effect, a soft out-of-focus blur of luminosity. The reference to light is about creating a glow, an incandescence, a moment of illumination, something mysterious, magical and special imbued with special moments of hope in a brighter future.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as giving their walls finesse with a splash of colour for years to come.
