inspired by trees

drawing, painting, walking, reading, my spare time is taken up with these things.  My days are spend creating interiors, all good stuff, but its not freedom, a lot of constraints.  Drawing allows me to express what I sense and just lately its something about the spirit and energy that abounds when I walk in the woods.

My studio has been littered with ideas, written descriptions, and little sketches.  my first sketch I would like to capture as a tiny miniature with raised gilding and jewel like colours like a medieval illumination.  then through a series of sketches I came up with another tree spirit this time in oils and much biger.  Its not finished yet and I am sure will go through many transformative colour changes.  But here is where I am for now…………..

  1. I especially love the second one, Carol. It just makes me want to tune into the rustling rhythm of the leaves and join in the dance. Lovely. Just lovely.
