The 'Open Edition Artist's Prints' are produced by myself 'on demand' using my professional Epson Stylus Pro 7880 wide format printer on the highest quality Epson 350gsm heavyweight Premium Satin poly/cotton (65/35) water resistant art canvas at a high definition 2880 x 1440 dpi and using UV resistant 9 colour 100% pigmented inks guaranteed lightfast for 75 years. This canvas has a glossy surface and may be stretched for framing if required. I can also print on heavyweight Hahnemühle (or equal) fine art paper if required and subject to the quantity of prints. Each print is individually reproduced, QC examined and passed by myself to authenticate its origin and verify its quality. Please see the Prints page for further details. Print prices are uniform, depending only upon size. Although all artwork is shown in my galleries in the colours created, I can produce prints in black & white should this be preferred. Please contact me for details. They are generally supplied unframed to save on shipping costs, though frames can be provided at an extra cost if required.

The dancer hides from the light, a Poise in Silhouette, oblivious to you, the viewer...

Produced in cooperation with Ed Flores (Thanks Ed)

Painted entirely with a knife. A high level of contrast is provided and the colours made extremely rich, bold and lustrous, thus creating a very contemporary feel overall.

It's a large, very dramatic, passionate, emotive, moody and atmospheric figurative dance painting that would not look out of place as a feature in a lounge, study, office, music room, conservatory, bedroom, hall, landing or similar room and be a focal point to be proud of.

This painting will be supplied framed in a heavy, high quality frame. Contact me for details

Contact myself for more information about this beautiful work of art, or if you would like to purchase a print. Obviously, the quality of the original painting and prints is much better than displayed here, though if you wish to make a closer inspection, please let me know of any specific area you're interested in and I'll e mail a higher resolution image to you.

This painting was supplied framed in a heavy, high quality Arqadia frame as shown in the image below, hung on my lounge wall. Contact me for details.

Here's what a wide variety of artists thought of it on Deviant Art, Fine Art America and Red Bubble, where you can also purchase unsigned prints, posters, postcards, mugs, t shirts, coasters, stickers and jigsaws of my artwork.

Below is the image on the CD cover of the latest album from Blazing Leslie - Dancing on The Wide Eyed Edge. The album is indeed very elegant, fresh, virtuosic, and yet a little nostalgic -- a dichotomy. Just the way they like it...

In November 2011, this painting was a selected finalist in the Aesthetica Magazine Creative Works Competition out of 3,000 entries and was featured in the Creative Works Annual 2012 as can be seen from the below image. Considering that this is a very contemporary, often modern art magazine, this is quite an accomplishment!
