1999 reworked 2010
Oil study on oil board (approx A3)
During my celtic period I started this solitary soul tangled upon a mountain top. I did several celtic tree people but most remain as studies. This one I have tried to rework this year but I still want to do more to it.
I thought about painting ribbons tied to the branches. ( ribbons with names or words ). I could even tie real tiny ribbons to the painting. Ive also thought about birds inhabiting the branches. Birds eating berries maybe?
The face was an early attempt to capture two moods ( or an inner thought ) which is something I have tried to do ever since.
