Pete has one of the largest collection of Alpine ski prints in the world and was featured in the renowned – The Ski Journal.

I started off my ski prints many years ago in an impressionist style, innocent and beautiful but a little constrained. This quickly developed into broad bold strokes of pure deep colour lusciously daubed onto the pistes and trees to capture the depth and energy of feeling of the mountains, with a light nod to the impressionist painters of the 19th Century. This moved into quite a crazy period of Lowry like figures drunk on the high octane energy of the Alps before it all calmed down into some deep white textured off piste scenes and resort ski favourites with heavily texture avenues, glades, pistes and lifts cutting through the mountains.

This season I have been digging deep into the depths of feeling, the intensity, the sounds, the solitude and the cold of the mountains in the depths of winter. This started with the sketches of my favourite blizzards and snow storms of some of the best ski trips I had. Where the mountains seem to reach out and envelop you with its huge hands of peace with numbed senses, shutting down the outer life and bringing life inside into an intense glow, a sadistic satisfaction set in the rawness of the conditions. As the furnaces stoke up and the visibility shuts down, feelings are all that is left, focus, feeling, and riding with the flow in perfect inner harmony….. until bump crash and a soft pillow of powder awaits to stuff itself down your back, fill your pants and freeze your wrists. Just when you thought you had come to a standstill, you were really still moving, or at least until the moment you realised you weren’t and then you really weren’t at all. , because you were a snowman with an orange carrot nose all along.

Riddles aside this set of paintings The Skiing Feeling Collection (and Snowboarding) is the start of the exploring the colder side, greyer, moodier side of a bleak winter ski trip, but its the calm before the storm leading to the beautiful white powder blanket christened by bluebird sky days it leaves in its wake that we all long for. Within the longing are the dreams that lie in these paintings. Read here more about the Skiing Feeling Collection.

Ski Print and Poster from Verbier / Nendaz

Verbier ski poster ski print above Nendaz

This ski print of Mt Fort above Verbier and Nendaz is one of my favourites. Not because it is neat or tidy or even precise but its very nature captures the atmosphere at this most incredible meeting point at the base of Mt Fort in the depths of a winter storm. This was a bit of old ply I had lying around so I put some white gesso on it and splashed some paint on it without thought or care. When you paint on an old piece of wood it has a transforming effect on the painting. As its already a piece of wood that is redundant with no use, there is nothing to loose you can wreck it and it doesn’t matter, and it kind of promotes an instantaneous, risky painting. Sometimes these chance attempts at destruction to capture an atmosphere, a mood work and sometimes not and destruction is fullfilled.

In this case I already had an idea in mind to capture the 3 cable car meeting point and the final destination of the peak Mt Fort in one painting. But it never quite computed as there was too much to fit in, too many angles. This is where the instantaneous point of creation came in and in a few brush strokes everything melted into one place, or froze more to the point. This is why I really like painting on old bits of building materials I find around the studio they seem to insist on this sort of approach where creation forms out of destruction.

I normally tidy up this sort of painting and sort out all the splodges and funny shaped people which all seem to come out of the heat or cold of the moment and the madness of just splashing water and paint around . But this scrappy, splashy and haphazard approach had left something indelible on the canvas (ply) which just had to stay, it was unique and created in the heat of the moment without thought. So a bit wonky, not quite straight, this just captures the scene in mid winter January perfectly, cold and blustery as the storm moves in to dump its beautiful present of powder coating on the mountain. Within the frozen clouds and winds imagination forms. Colours are frozen out, form seems to twist and bend, people half disappear and in the extremes of the mountain cold stuck in a meter of powder without a ski seems like life itself is warping into another reality, another level.

I love it. Not least because it is the premonition of the painting below hidden within it’s frozen imagination, of the blue sky sunny skiing in fresh powder to come in the morning below of shrieks and howls in crispy blue sky echoing round the mountain lofty peaks of fun and ouverte exhilaration off bouncing powder cushions and billowing frozen ice.

Lech Zurs and St Anton Ski Prints and Posters

Ski Posters from Lech, Zurs and St Anton, one of my favourite ski areas in Austria.

I first skied St Anton and Lech when I was 14 and went back 20 years later to paint the ski area.

With so much incredible off piste this became a major focus of the ski posters especially off the back of Valluga. What I loved most about this route was the amazing cable car which took you up to the top, a place that time forgot embedded with the atmosphere of so many epic off piste trips.

Most of the ski posters and prints and focussed around the St Anton Ski area with some side trips off to Lech and Zurs later on.

India Paintings from Meherabad & Meherazad, home of Meher Baba

Meherabad MeherBaba's Samadhi

After nearly 15 years Pete has finally made part of his collection of India paintings available for sale as prints and some of the prized originals as now available for the first time ever.

Meher Baba Painting
Meher Baba Painting

Pete began his painting career many years ago in central India. While travelling the globe he set up temporary home in a place called Meherabad in central India. Borrowing the studio of a well know American artist during the hot afternoons he slowly learnt to paint with some wonderful help by the owner and resident artist. With his camera and paintbrush he started to capture the scenes in which he made his daily life full of life, colour, and vibrancy. The home of Meher Baba, an Indian Spiritual Master who had died in 1969. This place was not only soaked in the strong Indian sun bathing the scenes in deep rich vibrant colours but it was saturated by the immense spiritual presence and power of the Spiritual Master who had made this place home and hosted many of India’s most revered Saints.

This time in India, the light and the spiritual atmosphere, the artists and musicians drawn here were to shape the formative years of Pete’s birth as an artist. Many of the techniques he learnt and experimented with here you can find in his ski art and sunsets and of course in his India Paintings.

In the prints and originals for sale you can find extracts from his studies on the beautiful landscape of the vast Meherabad and Meherazad estate, the Samadhi, the tomb shrine of Meher Baba and of course studies of the Spiritual Masters face.

The study of Meher Baba’s face was profoundly influential on Pete’s art as he studied the movement and expressions of His face. After a vow of silence He was completely silent for most of his life only speaking through gestures and facial expressions leaving the language of Love to flow uninhibited.

My Favourite Zermatt and Matterhorn Ski Paintings and the Gornergrat Bahn Mountain Railway.

Vintage Ski Posters The Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche Zermatt

Zermatt is one of my favourite resorts with the epic Matterhorn dominating the sky line and the wonderful Gornergrat Bahn mountain railway cruising up from Town up to the ski areas high above at Gornergrat.

Zermatt Matterhorn ski print painting

I hired a super apartment just above the railway station just so I could soak up the atmosphere of this very special intersection where the Glacier Express Terminates and then across the road the Gornergrat Bahn railway starts. I am not a train geek but I do love the mountain railways of Switzerland and the very special historic atmosphere they bring to a ski resort.
