Detail of a ‘Aligning the Planets’ painting that I am revisiting at the moment.. For the past year I thought this painting was finished, but I’m feeling a new energy with it now. Some detail sections below.
Full size 100cm x 100cm, oil and cold wax on linen
One of the many things that make me stop on my tracks while out on hikes is the sound of creaking trees. I just love that sound so much and it is very comforting to me for whatever reason. The creaks vary in levels of sound and speed depending on the weather conditions and the age or size of the tree. The older and bigger the tree, the deeper it sounds. It also changes in speed according to the winds. They echo from one end of the forest to another as if in communication to each other.
