‘New Beginnings’ is one of four artworks I am donating to the David Nott Foundation, which I painted after being profoundly moved reading David Nott’s book War Doctor. Surgeon David Nott continually takes himself away from his safe set up in the UK, to risk his life training war doctors on the front line in areas of conflict and catastrophe. These paintings are 85x85cm and framed in a white-wash wood tray frame. They are selling for £1200 each - which is the price to train one doctor overseas with davidnottfoundation.comMy aim has been to create artworks for the foundation which inspire positive feelings of calm and contemplation. The landscape needed to be non-descript but to suggest change and travel – themes which residents fleeing war torn countries must often face. I wanted to touch on the base human feelings of courage and hope, feelings required in such difficult situations.I carefully chose names to conjure up the emotions they represent, there is: Solace; Reflection; Legacy; and New Beginnings. If you buy one of these pieces the message is clear, you are paying for a doctor to be trained overseas and myself and the charity personally thank you so much.
I want nothing less than your total satisfaction with your painting. If this is not the case then do get in touch to arrange a return.
