The Pantone Colour of the Year for 2020 is 'Classic Blue' a favourite colour of mine...
'Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era...
Classic Blue... a timeless and enduring hue elegant in its simplicity. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of the thought-provoking'...
'We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on... Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.
Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge. Aiding concentration and bringing laser-like clarity Classic Blue re-centers our thoughts. A reflective blue tone, Classic Blue fosters resilience.'
'As technology continues to race ahead of the human ability to process it all, it is easy to understand why we gravitate to colors that are honest and offer the promise of protection. Non-aggressive and easily relatable, the trusted, Classic Blue lends itself to relaxed interaction. Associated with the return of another day, this universal favorite is comfortably embraced.'

My painting “Red Poppy Field” is featured in the 'New This Week Collection' at Saatchi. This Collection is curated by Rebecca Wilson, the Chief Curator, VP and Art Advisory at Saatchi.
This is a beautiful oil painting of a field of red Poppies, with several trees in the distance. The composition of this artwork gives it an abstract look.
READY TO HANG: The edges of the canvas are painted white so this painting is ready to hang without framing if required.
