2016 art calendar showcases my favourite paintings of trees from
the past four years of working en plein air. On each page you will find an
excerpt from my journal and two images. Some provide a detail of brushwork, and others give a glimpse of myself at work in the presence of
the trees themselves.
I love the relationship between foliage and sky. When I look upward I'm conscious of sharing the tree's perspective, feeling sunlight and air on leaves. The sky becomes part of the tree as the tree reaches up into the sky.
