SUMMER WILLOW, 2015
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Size: 90 H x 120 W x 4 cms

A Commission for a Collector in London.

If you've ever visited an English village green in summertime, with its almost obligatory duck pond, then you'll understand the sense of well-being this painting is trying to convey - capturing the unique character of the willow and the way it engulfs you with its foliage into a beautiful world of light and privacy, particularly when the sun shines.

The inspiration goes back to childhood, when tree climbing provided true solace.
