Farewell to Autumn

Oil on Board, 80 x 80 cms, 31.5 x 31.5 inches

I think most people love the Autumn colours in the UK.  Most years they are amazing, and as an artist, I am no different.  It is my favourite time of year, there are a few summer flowers left but as the mornings and evenings get chillier the woodlands come into their own.  The amazing autumn colours, even when they have left the trees still make the floor of woodland pathways stunning.

This oil painting is of an avenue of equally spaced trees planted by man, giving the landscape an un-natural symmetry.  There are very few places in the world that have not been manipulated by humanity and even though this artwork is a celebration of nature, it also reminds us of climate change.  In fact, the trees changing colour is happening later and later each year.

In the far distance a landscape can be seen which was inspired by the South Downs, Sussex and camouflaged into this background is the final creature leaving for warmer weather. The texture in this work disrupts the calmness of the image and is a metaphor for the underlying nature that we do not see, understand or choose to ignore.  Nature is under threat.
