I have one tree that I have painted and drawn more than half a dozen times- it stands on the side of the lower road between Commondale and Castleton, outside Thornhill Farm, so I call it Thornhill Tree. I like its perfect dome shape and the way it is silhouetted against the morning sky.Here are a few examples of work - already sold but I'm sure I'll be doing more!
There is so much humanity in a love of trees, so much nostalgia for our first wonder, so much power in just feeling our own insignificance when we are surrounded by nature........
Muriel Barbary. the Elegance of the Hedgehog
Once, walking home, I passed beneath a Tree,
It filled the air like dark stone statuary,
It was so quiet and still,
Its thick green leaves a hill
Of strange and faint earth-branching melody.
