Personal Commentary:


Trees:  When I enrolled onto a  Fine Art course, I had to undertake a project of work of your own choice of topic and to produce three pieces of work on this topic.  I chose "trees" as the topic and set about finding trees that are relevant to specific environments.  Willow trees alongside the river, the Yew and a churchyard, and Beeches in an Avenue. 


More recently I find that trees have crept into many of my paintings without me realising it.  A fellow artist tells me: "Not more b****y trees!"


Canals:  Another project and another topic - this time canals.  The two pictures presented opposite are from positions on the Monmouthshire - Brecon Canal some 30 miles apart.  Locks 5 and 6  is based upon the lock restoration work that was being done at the time in Newport.  Bridge 129  is a view on the canal in Llangynidr, Powys.
