“The two new paintings that I am exhibiting here are based on memories of real places that I know. The first ‘The Land of Strange Music’ is a folly on Summerhouse Hill near Yeovil, whenever I walked there I would hear the strangest music coming from the building. ‘Late evening, early summer, seventy miles away’ has been a labour of love. It is a large painting of the view from Rhandirmwyn near Llyn Brianne which isn’t too far from Llandovery. . I’ve really exaggerated the landscape and its features to try and capture, the depth of the landscape, the vibrancy and the magic of the place.”
