This is another tree painting with it's roots in a Midjourney piece (pun intended). I liked the pooling of light at the bottom of the tree and somehow triggered a memory of when I came across the remains of a Wiccan (?) ceremony in the ancient yew forest of Kingley Vale some years ago. The people that know about these things will notice that I have mixed together two seasons as corn dollies are associated with the end of the harvest season whereas I have set them in an Autumnal/Winter scenario.... artistic license in operation....
I am kind of thinking that I could have left out the artefacts and might have been a better painting but I liked the idea of the painting having more of a context to it rather than just being a straight landscape painting.
Oil on fine cotton 16" x 12".
There is a step-by-step progress through this painting in previous posts on this blog.
