AFTER THE MISTRAL, 2015
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Size: 90 H x 120 W x 4 cms

One of the first memories from the South of France is the distinctive shape of the umbrella pine - surely among the most beautiful trees of all, with their dense, flat-topped canopy and sculptural branches.

Here the angular stance of the tree, caused by regular exposure to the mistral, contrasts with the calm tranquility of the Mediterranean.
