  • Acrylics & mixed media (inks, charcoal, oil pastel) on 320gsm Khadi paper with deckle edges. Surface mounted on white mountboard. Varnished.
  • White wood frame. The frame is unglazed so the painting ‘floats’. Ready to hang.

  • Framed size: 43 x 53.5cm | 17 x 21"

Expressing these paintings in words...

I am used to expressing myself with paint. With my 'Where The Trees Dance' collection, however, I felt compelled to do the same in written form.

My poem below attempts to put into succinct words what landscape and nature means to me. To convey some of the feelings and emotions that I pour into my art.

Where The Trees Dance

A lone tree clings to a stony slope
Buffeted by a tormenting wind
Standing proud
An endless reach for the sweeping sky
Wild beauty beneath swirling clouds
In a vast and desolate glen
Dramatic in solitude
I breathe and feel alive
Where the trees dance

A huddle of trees entwine their branches
Observing atop a rolling hill
Standing together
Bathed in light by the admiring sun
Rhythmic swaying and whispering leaves
In a warm and gentle breeze
Comfort in familiarity
I smile and feel at peace
Where the trees dance
