OUT OF THE WOODS

Using an abstracted approach in this group of paintings, the trees are denuded of leaves, emphasising the rhythmic and surprisingly colourful interplay of trunks and branches.

 

Like many others, with good fortune, Lockdown in 2020 presented me with more time to walk our dog,Walton. And I began to consciously look carefully at trees. Along pavements, around perimeters of local parks, absorbing the complexity of shape, form and colour.

 

As our wise medical officers said: “We're not out of the woods, yet”. And I relate to that. As Walton reads the morning's story in the grass at my feet, I observe the trees with a growing sense of heart-felt awe and gratitude.
