David Weston's paintings capture the essence of the English landscape. Few other artists appeal so directly to those of us who have a sentimental yearning for the kind of scenery that is fast disappearing - taken over by modernity and urban sprawl. His paintings perfectly capture the nostalgia we all feel for times past, represented in his view of thatched cottages, ruined mills and in the splendour of ancient castles. Here are displayed over 120 of his finest paintings providing a complete range of this versatile painter's work - from stirring portrayals of the Cornish Coast, to dramatic Northern cityscapes, and from cosy Cotswold village scenes to bleak Cumbrian farms. Each painting brings home to us the importance of appreciating the unique qualities and in conserving the beauty of our heritage, and honouring those who built in stone and steel the castles and the factories that time has turned to ruin. David Weston's England will be launched on 14 October 2005 to coincide with an exhibition of the original paintings from the book at The Lazy Acre, Kirkby Bellars, Melton Mowbray, Leicesteshire from 15-23 October 2005.
David Weston has enjoyed success as an artist for over 35 years. His paintings are held both in private and public collections and his annual one-man exhibitions are eagerly awaited and invariably sold out.
