This is an impressionistic rendering of the life and energy that trees give us.
I love trees. I love their silent, life-giving, aesthetically harmonious, self-sacrificial presence.

Dappled Light with tree square greeting card
This is a special commission I did while living in Ashkelon, Israel in 2005-6.
This painting has been sold but cards and prints are available.
I like to give this card to the lovely women in my life who appreciate beauty and who deserve to be reminded of how special they are!
I did this painting in 2005.
It explores impressionistic and expressionistic techniques of separating colours and giving a sense of intensity.
I call this technique “heightened realism”.
I’m trying to capture the way that nature “bursts forth” with vitality, as if it were praising God, hence its name.
I found the prophet Isaiah’s words resonating: “the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing”.
