Autumn Beech River Salz

Oil on canvas
76 x 61cm

On an autumn afternoon with the sun disappearing behind the high hill of forest a monumental beech tree stands in its brown leafed phase on a bed of fallen leaves. The River Salz cascades green in the left foreground to balance the bowl of the beech. The forested hill is a pattern of perpendiculars rendered with brush strokes whose action is liberal and expressive.

Artist Statement: The fire of light and the breath of air, the depths of land and the dance of trees make landscape a fantastic reality through which life can wander or surge with the freedom of a dreamer. I sit and draw the nature that has come to be manifest in an aesthetic display far removed from chaos or system or motive. My pencil contains my box of paints as my heart and eye contain a love for the mountain. Member: Society of Scottish Artists and Aberdeen Artists Society.
