Simply click on the category picture to view some of our images that are available to be mounted and/or framed.
Canals and Rivers include life and times of people along the stretches of our vast waterways,weaving and winding through our 'very British' beautiful, scenic Countryside linking many hundreds of historic Towns and Villages. Throughout this tapestry of water, earth and architecture, lies the culture and 'spirit' of a nation, embedded and personfied through architectural marvels and mystical emblems.
The category on 'Icons and Bygones' provides reflections of the 'powerful', the 'majestic' and the 'mysterious'; facinating geographies as well as educational, mystic, spiritual and religious images from around the world.
A featured special category is Arabic Art and Culture. It reflects architecture, clothing and historical places (some with access restrictions where we had an extremelly rare chance to explore and create some rarified images and commissions). Arabic art backdating millenia, a unique characterisation connected to Arabic writing. Understanding this mystical beauty is like waking up to the smell of fresh Arabica coffee beans, served with dates from Al Hasa Oasis, and dousing a splattering of Ood - it means appreciating the art form and the culture.
We do not provide portraits but do include people when they are naturally interacting with the their environment (work, leisure, play) because this can be a truly reflective moment (as opposed to a self-styled moment!). The category on Life-skills, [Crafts and Hobbies] observes (some very unusual) people and their environment using their 'tools of the trade'. This maintain the overall theme of Lollipop's images and prints.
