Tree of Life
oil on wood
30 x 40cm
Tree of Life painting was inspired by a screenshot of a news report on wildfire in the Amazon jungle, hence the title. I messed with the colouring slightly, using four colours and only silhouetting the trees and foliage.
I was attracted by the beauty of the flames, the plight of the Amazon and the message the image conveyed.
Strong images like these need a corner to hang in, somewhere you turn towards so it can take you by surprise.
Painted in oil on a braced wooden panel, 2cm deep with neatly painted edges, ready to hang.
