I do love trees. This painting comes from countless walks through the small beech wood, ten minutes amble from my doorstep. Love it in the autumn when the golden-brown leaves float down and carpet the ground and let in the bright blue sky, when the winter reveals the tracery of the branches, in the spring with the fresh light green of new leaves, and in the summer when only shafts of sun make it past the shade to the beech wood floor.

Not at all what the river is looking like at the moment! The river has spilled over into the field turning it into a lake, and is nearly over the top of the bridge; the sheep are definitely not grazing. This though is a favourite spot, peaceful and empty of visitors a lot of the time, but in better weather sometimes a busy-ish junction for walkers, dog-walkers, kids (and dogs) paddling, picnickers, a horse now and then, cyclists. And the occasional artist.

I thought these needed to be seen together and with frames. A new way of doing things; board on painted board, framed, with no glass for a slightly rustic feel to go with the subject. I might do some more.

Sometimes it looks a little more like this in January…frosty instead of the soggy mess it is outside now as I am posting this.

I’ve included a bunch of things that mean Stonesfield to me. The first fossil identified as a dinosaur – was found in my village of Stonesfield, so I’ve painted that in too. Time-consuming to get all the elements to fit together, but fun.
