Original 'Midnight Rain At The Onsen' painting 

Day four from my Daily Healing series, this painting looks through a small window to a calming memory of an evening at an onsen in Matsuyama. An onsen is a natural hot spring found at traditional inns in Japan. I bathed every evening during my time there, it was incredibly relaxing. However, I was a little shy about being naked to start with, so I'd go late at night when it was less crowded. On this particular evening, I went to the outdoor area around midnight and looked up to the sky as I soaked in the warm, actually very hot water, it started to rain gently. It was a perfect moment. Complete stillness and refreshment.

The style of the minimalist abstract painting is inspired by Agnes Martin, whose evenly spaced lines evoke a sense of calm and order. I hope that you, too, can feel the sense of serenity imbued in this work.

About Daily Healing

My art has always been a reflection of my travels and experiences. But, this latest series is reflective of an entirely new journey. As I navigate health treatments, these paintings have become a healing exercise, a moment of calm in my day when I can visualise and paint memories from my past travels. When I'm not feeling so good, I revisit a fresh, duney beach in Sweden, or relive the pitter-patter of a rainy night in Soho.

Pay What You Can

Because I am unable to work at the moment, I have decided to add these original paintings to my lineup of prints. However, I am offering the option to pay what you can if you feel pulled to support me and my work as I embark on this new journey. I have a guide price of £30, but you can pay less if you need to, or more if you want to. Simply select the price you want to pay before adding to cart.
