Recent Paintings and The Windhover and Waters Collection
Recent paintings combine with other works in a new series The Windhover and Waters Collection. Inspired by The Windhover poem and the flight of eagles, recent paintings combine with other works in this new series.
Paintings in The Collections hover between abstraction and representation, highlighting movement and space, overviews, light and colour.
“I caught this morning’s minion, king-
dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn falcon, in his riding,”
Opening lines of The Windhover, a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins
The lines of this poem are indelibly etched in my mind.
And here, on the Island,
watching our eagles overhead as they soar, float, skimming the wind
-images of their majesty, combined with the words from a memorable poem.
