a landscape suffused with organic, natural growth,
yet guided by the human instinct for industry.
a young plantation with imposed regularity,
reaching towards adolescence,
rebels with ragged undergrowth.
Subject to the wind and weather,
it carries the wound of fallen trees as a badge of its maturity.

    Great depth and earthiness; wonderful feel movement, and for me almost a manic sense of urgency in the gesture/brush stokes. The layers are like the passing of time and memory, some clear, some blurred. I’m very much drawn to the merging of layers on the right, particularly the top right – it has such a fantastic subliminal effect on me (reminiscent of Rothko’s work).

    You have an altogether awesome body of work in your portfolio!

  • Elaine, you blow me away!
