Artwork Description

Oil on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Observing trees in my neighbourhood.
An ongoing series of paintings, all 30.5 x 30.5 cm, oil on canvas. I have painted what I see when I look closely and study the patterns, colours and textures of the tree trunks around my suburban home.
Some are stringy, some flaky, chunky, smoooth, shiny, rough, peeling and split. I endeavour to convey the reality of the bark, infused with my emotional response to the natural world and its beauty.
The variety of subjects is endless which means this series might continue for quite a while as I discover new trees all the time.
