This painting is taken pretty much directly from a photo taken by a Flickr artist of a place in Wales, UK called Hafod Forest. Normally photographs need a good deal of improvements and several runs through a sketch book before I start the final work but this picture was one of those rare perfect compositions or at least it seemed to have the near magical qualities that I was looking for. I like to capture a certain presence or perhaps an Awareness of Place in my work, and it’s not at all common to see such type of subject and photographer come together in one place.

This is also the largest work that I’ve done in pastel since first picking them up again. I do like working in the larger format since it allows for more detail and larger paintings are more noticeable. The portal or pathway between the two trees was the primary element that attracted me to the picture, however, when reinterpreting the subject I found that it was necessary to be careful and avoid segmenting the composition too much so I decided to soften the lines and integrate the objects together to create more unity.

Size: 16 x 20"
Medium: Soft Pastel on Colorfix Primed Canson Board

Shipping: Painting ships wrapped in glassine and sandwiched between two pieces of foam board which is taped together to prevent slipping and then this package is placed flat in the bottom of a cardboard box with packing material to cushion it and keep it from moving around in the box.
