new work....

Ooops, forgot to post the new paintings....

"Give me a break", 600 x 500 mm
These donkeys were taking a rest from pulling their cart, standing in dappled shade.
"Backlit" 600x600
Believe it or not these are white chrysanthemums, but when backlit by strong sunlight, they went a shadowy purple which appealed to me.....
"The Lonely Tree", 400 X 700mm
There is an exhibition on at the moment at a local gallery, called "Poetry to Art". This is inspired by the poem "lonely Tree" by Wilfred Gibson

I liked the chrysanths but I LOVED The Lonely Tree - really atmospheric and different palette to what Hugh would use for Scottish colours.

thanks, I didn't have the words of the poem with me yesterday, it goes
"Though I love the forests deep and wide,
The lonely tree on the bare hillside,
The brave wind bitten lonely tree,
is rooted in the heart of me."

I love "The Lonely Tree"....the colors are beautiful and what a sense of movement I got from the tree and the clouds.
