Tree in morning sun, Botanical Gardens, Geelong


Okay, I freely admit I'm a tree-hugger. I love them. So much so that in my first novel, 'Snowing and Greening of Thomas Passmore', I turned my main character into a tree - Leafy George - for a short while! And while I'm predominantly painting the interplay of shadows across buildings at the moment, there's more often than not a tree somewhere in the background to remind the viewer about the enduring power of nature. 


When I saw the many ways the sunlight was dancing through this particular tree in Geelong Botanical Gardens, to create highlights, contrasts, and wonderful shadows, I was very keen to capture my impression of it. This is the result.

Framed in raw oak.
