The trees in Cornwall get battered by the strong winds and create wonderful shapes. They are a symbol of survival against all the odds.

My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models.

    fabulous…I can feel the wind. This makes me think of the Oregon coast too. Di

  • I think that might because I could feel the wind as I painted en plein air! Thank you for your lovely comment.

    Oh…I LOVE this…reminds me of our coastal casurinas that are all sea blown.

  • Thank you, have you painted the casurinas…I don’t know what they might look like, will do a search.

    Casurinas come in a few different forms…usually near water – coast and inland.Commonly called She Oaks…they have needle like leaves (like a segmented pine needle in a dull green) and small inch long seed cones…on the coast they are often on headlands and are windswept…looking alot like your painting…almost a Bonsai effect.

  • Oh, I love the sound of those, and I LOVE the name. She Oaks,sounds magical, I would so enjoy painting them.
