'The lazy, hazy crazy days of summer' depicted by John Nelson
John has portrayed summer in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland
A striking view standing on a high hill looking down into a glen as the river winds down to the sea loch
John was influenced by the rugged beauty of the area around the Quirang on the island of Skye
Living and working in the rolling landscape Scottish Borders led to this work
John loved the countryside and was intrigued by the shapes found there
The excitement of the colour and the noise as you approach the fair
Travelling circuses are a past memory of colour, excitement and smell as you approach!
John told many amusing tales from his childhood spent in an Edinburgh tenement
Auld Reekie is the old nickname for Edinburgh because the smoke coming out of the chimneys from the old high tenements could be seen as you approached the city
John loved the delicate shapes and colours of flowers especially azaleas
John particularly loved poppy-like flowers. The original of this will never be sold!
Perhaps this is John's very best flower painting? A very popular print.
John loved flowers, their colours and shapes.
John always wanted to paint poppies, his favourite flowers
More poppies which John loved, this time in a Moorcroft vase
John loved growing poppies, sitting looking at them in wonder, then painting them.
John's love of colour and flower shapes combine to make this striking picture
John's 1970's style of a beautiful variegated poppy in his wonderfully imaginative colourful hand!

All the fun and colour of a lovely picnic
