The Investigation Of Things
The Golden Bough
The Golden Bough is a 30x30x1.5 inches contemporary oil painting of an oak tree and a deer in an autumn forest clearing. The painting was created by weaving and layering lots of paint layers in a semi abstract art nouveau style using pale yellows, orange, violets and pinks which give an intriguing glimpse into the heart of a forest. A female deer stands guarding her tree which is an ancient oak matriarch of the forest. The Oak, who has golden leaves, knows exactly what is going on in her wood and has tracked every movement by man and beast over centuries. The painting was inspired by the fact that oak trees and deer do, in fact, have a mystery to them. You always wonder what they would tell you if they would talk. I like the idea of worlds beyond the mundane and have used veils of paint to hint at possible mysteries or fairy tales being revealed. I painted it at this time (Sept 2019) as it is the end of summer and beginning of autumn and it is a palpable change in nature that prompts walks in forests and musings about the stories they could tell :-) Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang.
