November Oak.

November Oak brings me to the end of my one-per-month series of twelve paintings. I’m really pleased with the result.

A time honoured subject with a contemporary approach. Importantly, I can lead you to any one of these trees and you would recognise it from the painting. Unlike the vague “one size fits all” tree paintings of the gallery shops, these function more as portraits, and I hope I’ve captured the character of tree and season alike in each case.

Above: Not the nicest of ways to end my one-painting-per-month art year. A heavy cold. I reckon nature has a way of making you stop occasionally, creating a space in which to lie back on the duvet, rest up, and have a think.
