“Shine on the Dazzling Darkness” is a large ethereal abstract seascape oil painting 80x100cm (31.5x39inches) on a 4cm (1.5 inch) deep canvas. Painted after spending time in Prussia Cove in Cornwall when it snowed and the light was very grey. The title is from a song by Joni Mitchell.
The paint is layered and blended and textured in parts. The edges are painted white and it’s signed on the back. It’s ready to hang and comes with a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity.
When I despatch a painting I always send a personalised card and a complimentary set of 3 hand made greetings cards as a thank you.
Julia is an abstract painter inspired by nature and music, particularly land and sea. Her latest paintings are abstract sunsets using colour to express light reflecting onto water. Julia paints from memory and her vivid artworks evoke a great feeling of place.
She always listen to music when painting and feel that this has a strong influence on the finished work. Julia has chosen song lyrics from Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Crosby Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Pink Floyd and David Bowie amongst others to title her paintings. She feel that a snippet of a song lyric as a title gives the painting extra depth.
"Many of my paintings are inspired by light on water. I have always loved the sea and my childhood holidays were spent in a caravan in Wales, where we spent a lot of time on beautiful windswept beaches looking at the ocean and sheltering from the British Summer. I went to college in Brighton to do my BA in Fine Art, where my love of the sea grew and I now try and spend as much free time as I can contemplating the coast, despite living in London! The Welsh coastline is still very special to me, as is Cornwall, which is now one of my favourite places in the whole world to visit and watch the light change on the sea. Many of my paintings are inspired by Prussia Cove in the wild West of Cornwall, a place I return to year after year."
