I produced most of these paintings over a two year period. Just before then I had been recovering from a serious stroke, so I had to ditch some of my other passions such as acting, after dinner speaking, fast cars, loose women, and my portrayal of Old Tom Morris, a progressive victorian golfing pioneer.

As you can see I’ve been through a lot of oil tubes and worn away about 40 brushes in creating this series of “Scapes”!

The beauty contained in David’s paintings is usually overlooked because we seldom see past the foreground details in our lives. These paintings give an opportunity to see one of nature’s great gifts with fresh eyes.
