Once, there was the sound of leaves..... by 

This work, like most of my paintings has a strong narrative behind it. I will give you 2 clues: Firstly, it is a metaphor for a wider meaning and secondly, it is not a sweet image about innocence (sorry).

I hope the imagery and title allows the viewer to decipher the intended message for themselves, however if another interpretation is generated, that’s ok too as it will hold more meaning for the individual.

Acrylic on canvas, 60cm x 60cm.

    a serene, dreamy night scape. I like the invitation to create a story – the horse and young woman are clearly connected by their common appearance.

  • Thanks Richard. Yeh, I want people to generate their own narrative and use those brainboxes. The girl has decorated her horse friend in her image. Sort of a comment on how us humans tend to want to control the natural environment until there won’t be anything naturally wild left. A gentle way of saying if there were less humans the world would be a better place. Glad you like.
