I love the woods. I love forests and I love trees. Yes, a lot of love for trees.
Silver birches are one of my favourite, they're so graceful. When I was growing up we had a huge birch in the front garden. In the summer when the tree was abundant with its small leaves it made such a restful sound through my bedroom window. I would lay on my bed sometimes and just listen to it.
I still find pleasure in picking dandelion seed heads, known as the 'pappus'. I'm sure you must remember blowing on them as a child, perhaps as an adult too. I like that the seeds can travel great distances. Sometimes I would like to be one of those seeds. But anyway, whilst out and about I found a little copse of birches with dandelion seed heads being blown up in to the air. Simple. Beautiful.
This is a painting of tranquility, soft tones yet very striking too because of the size.
I now provide framing consultation for each original painting, the cost includes this bespoke service. (Though for international and UK shipping - where unable to collect from my gallery - there will be an additional cost). I have a curated selection of 20 frames I work with that enhance with my work and colour palettes. Obviously, if you'd like to frame the artwork yourself there will be a reduction in the list price.
