Work in progress

The finished wall hanging

Earlier this year I complete a freeform wall hanging based on a beautiful tree in natural surroundings. I worked the cr onto a framework off withies, with a Hessian backdrop.

Wherever I go I am intrigued by patterns and textures. Last Autumn I took a leisurely walk with a friend round Cauldshiels Loch near Galashiels. It was a dreich grey day. Wet and still. Yet the cool quiet atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing and refreshing. Colours everywhere sang and shone in the wet.

Afterwards I returned to this wonderful atmospheric feeling and worked on capturing some of that vibrant,stripped-away stillness on canvas. Here is one of them in various stages of its emergence.
