Living by the woods

The back of my house faces the woods – it’s like a green wall in summer. I’ve been separating out the trees to give myself a subject. Somehow doing this also makes me feel less oppressed by the wall – a gathering of 10,000 trees that are twice as old as me and twice as high as my house.

Exhibition at Horticap, April 2013

A taste of what’s on show at the exhibition of my paintings at Horticap this month. There’s a rolling program of artists exhibiting at this venue in 2013 – here’s the blogspot to see what’s on.

Spring equinox

Started painting again. This was on Sunday, the last thing I saw before the sun went down. It’s cold and the trees still have no leaves, but they will soon.
