‘Flower Girl’ is medium sized original oil painting on canvas, signed by the artist.

This painting is inspired by my love of ‘pastoral portraits’, particularly the work of the 19th century Glasgow Boys who painted children at work in rural Scotland. I paint from imagination and create an imaginary Scotland that could be the past or the future. Because it is imaginary I am free to follow my feeling about what colours to use and to express as much of my own humanity as I wish. Through scraping, layering, brushing paint I try to get as much of my own feeling into the work as I can so it becomes as alive as possible. I paint children because they can just exist purely on the picture – just their presence and the feeling and the colour.

Framed Original Artwork

We offer a professional farming service for Original Artwork at a flat rate of £60. Frames are hand-made to fit by Artist Surfaces in Anniesland, Glasgow, and ready to hang. This cost covers the cost of frame, work and the additional postage expenses.

John Martin personally selects a frame that best suits the artwork and would often be either Black, White or Grey.

We understand that this may not suit your home so please leave a note at checkout if you have a frame colour preference or call him to discuss.

Please allow additional time for the painting to be framed and dispatched.

Free Worldwide Delivery

Delivery is FREE for all my paintings and prints.

Buying prints from the site should be simple. Each print will be made to order so I would ask that you allow ten days to for this process and for delivery.

Buying and shipping paintings (and having them framed if you wish) requires more attention. If you are interested, please email me at [email protected] or call 07546539796 so I can reassure you about the timescale and arrange a studio visit to see the painting in person if you wish.

International Delivery

International delivery is also FREE although this means it is subsidized in order to give more people worldwide access to my work.
