Gallery

Chris Williamson

Born in Croydon, London, Chris gained his Diploma in Technical and Scientific Illustration at Barnfield College in Luton. He has always kept sketchbooks and these drawings have become the basis for his paintings.
Having exhibited locally at various venues for around three years, Chris is now represented by the A&K Wilson Gallery in Harpenden and works from his studio in Barton Le Clay, Bedfordshire. Some of his work has been published as greetings cards.
Most of the paintings feature a man and his faithful Jack Russell (Barton Darcy), and usually come with 'ditties'. Simple four line poems to accompany them.
"I like to give people a grin if possible".

Red Tresses

Red Tresses

"She's nice" he said. "Not bad" I said.
"They rarely come much better"
"Nice hair" he said, "Yes! I said-
...."and long for a Red Setter".

Kippers (Boil in the bag)

Kippers (Boil in the bag)

Some mornings he wakes slovenly,
and wears these threadbare slippers.
Some mornings, more magnanimous,
he will share some of his kippers.

The Chicane

The Chicane

He forgot to wear his wellies,
and it’s just begun to rain.
Let’s hope that he don’t slip
as he negotiates the chicane.

The Dry Stone Wall

The Dry Stone Wall

We like the Yorkshire Moors
where the hills are fairly steep.
There’s not a soul to bother us,
just a jackdaw and some sheep.

Fen Church

Fen Church

We walked a field quite near the fens.
The soil was wet and boggy.
A lonely church looked out to sea,
the sun had made it foggy.

The Scooter

The Scooter

"Morning Garfield; Morning dog"
and we said "Morning Sir".
"Nice morning for a walk" we said.
"Or ride" and off he whirred.

The Camper Van

The Camper Van

He said he was a surfer,
but he sounded like a toff.
We liked his mode of transport,
he named it Camper Van Gogh.

On-line

On-line

Sometimes there are hundreds,
but today there’s only nine.
We reckon they must spend
half of their waking lives on-line.

Sea Palling

Sea Palling

The misty morning sunlight,
the seraphic sea breeze.
The slaps of tiny breakers
the droning of jet-ski's

The Snow Road

The Snow Road

He doesn't seem to suffer much,
as we walk the snowy lanes.
But it seems if I'm not careful,
my paws can get chilblains.

The Path

The Path

We exit a primeval wood
and join a path, all bent askew.
"All roads lead to Rome" they say.
I don't believe that though. Do you?

White Cliffs

White Cliffs

I love the breeze,
I love the sea and all it's briney smells.
The aroma of this stretch of beach
is tons of tiny shells.

Burgh Castle

Burgh Castle

To think this was a busy port,
in the 4th century AD.
If we had walked here then,
we would be underneath the sea

St Peter's Church

St Peter's Church

We're near St Peter's Church
which in turn is near Burgh Castle.
We came back from the shops,
with a fish & chippy smelling parcel.

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

Out there in the distance,
the lighthouse is softly blinking.
It must have saved many an
unwary soul from sinking.

The Three Amigos

The Three Amigos

We stop a while to cogitate
and admire the splendid view.
He has his, and I have mine
and Bill has his hill too.

The Grockle Machines

The Grockle Machines

Driftwood, rope, foam and rocks,
flint and shells and cockles.
Above us cliffs and grass and seagulls.
White machines and grockles.

The Pink Sky

The Pink Sky

C.Clarke and Dicks and Asimov,
and on and on he goes...
the hills the pink of Mars,
and clouds like UFO's.
