    These two striking trees are, as you can see from the topmost branches, infected and slowly dying. I wanted to preserve them . Brockham Farm is in the distance - situated ibeneath the North Downs in Surrey, England. You can see the steeple of Brockham Church in the distance. The uppermost branches are white and will never recover.

    Bushbury Farm

    I love the strength and energy of this landscape painting. It hooked me in immediately. It has such a strong sense of "place". Those trees are beautifully drawn and the perspective supports that feeling of power and beauty. The colors are so dynamic and once I got beyond the trees and sky and color I loved exploring the surprises in all of the detail. I love the colors and the light. This is a wonderful painting. It has such a strong personal style.


    Inspiring Tree

    I find the tree on the left particularly interesting. It looks like it's reaching for heaven. Is it seeking eternity?



    Love the positive and negative spaces against the sky. Abstract forms in nature. I love the way the tree branches shoot up against the sky in a three dimensional form. Great perspective and point of view.


    Dramatic painting!

    The saturated colours work well and the description gives added meaning.
