Original Puffin Love Print by Philip Surry
In November 2022 I took three days off to hang out on the island of Alderney. It's a spectacular island with rugged cliffs, coasts, and also stunningly sandy beaches.
I love how Alderney has the most beautiful quaint town of St Anne, the Piratey feeling of its harbour and pubs, and then open spaces of the countryside to explore. Within all this is a rich and fascinating history with German fortifications from the war built over ancient roman and victorian forts and emplacements.
Whilst walking, I came across a huge wooden Puffin statue overlooking the country path. I took a moment to honour this amazing monument and began to think more about my Puffin paintings and the success of the sales of my paintings.
The Puffin represents long-lasting relationships, love, faith and protection. Surely it was now time to paint two Puffins together?! Both partners are full of fun, and energy and are on the life journey together.
When I Paint, I have an idea, but I rarely know what is going to happen. What I do; as part of the creative process is 'tune in' to nature to guide me. Alderney has many places with unique energy vortexes and it was on the southern cliffs, I found a place that had my hair standing on end. I took off my shoes and bare feet allowing my feet to sink deep into the mud, the rain lashed my face - upward turned into the storm and I felt the energy rise within. It's during these moments that all my thoughts seem to dissipate into a blank sea of light. As the channel opens I see light in patterns, colours, and movement. This seems to create an imprint within me that I then save for when I get on the canvas to paint.
These two puffins came from that energetic download, these light movements, the dance, and the energy all came from the cliffs of Alderney. The two Puffins come from my heart.
