Recently I was in a serious funk over the way my paintings were turning out. I was hungry for punch, and something to grab me. It was a friend, Sara who was able to point me in the right direction with a simple suggestion; " you just need to use more powerful colour. Don't be afraid", she said. So I set out to do just that. The result was the latest series of paintings where I believe the difference is obvious. Sometimes revisiting older paintings not yet sold invited a splash of colour. It has changed this artists life and by the results and feed back from many of you it has brought a new perspective to my work.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
