Product Description

A Forever Love by Peter Smith

A signed, limited edition giclee on boxed canvas by Peter Smith, part of the new collection entitled “Summer of Love”.

The piece was published from the original adorned by Peter with gold leaf and hand finished with two layers of varnish to retain the lustrous finish.

At the age of nine, Peter bought his first set of watercolour paints and brushes, which he took everywhere with him. But when he started secondary school and was teased for his hobby, he put down his paintbrushes and didn’t return for many years.In 2000, his wife Jayne persuaded him to pick up his paintbrushes once more, and over the next decade, his beloved Impossimals began to take shape.

Peter gets his ideas from everyday life; in the street, the people he meets, the feelings he experience. He has even taken inspiration from history, in his Lost Impossimals Collection. At the end of every day he has hundreds of images, fighting for his attention and the chance to be painted; quite often he gets carried away with excitement and fills his sketchbook from cover to cover within hours giving him a rich source of reference material. Peter takes inspiration from other artists too; the quirkiness of Will Bullas with his strong characters and whimsical titles, but also the surreal Salvador Dali which has offered Peter an unusual slant on the world. But inspiration ultimately comes from deep inside, drawing on all his experiences. It’s only when painting he places his real emotions down, each canvas receiving a different layer of emotion with each session.
