Trees

Trees are always magical in my mind.The power of nature and the symbolisim  within trees. They take so long to grow and stand there for so many years.

The first photo is a fine specimen of a tree I think…..

The next photo is much more of a contained sort of tree but has a personalty different from the previous one.

…and finally a rather sad looking tree that seems to have lost most of its leaves,,,,and yes it is a shetland pony there that is feeding off the grass…

No Dates just a look at some wonderful paintings….
Two Girls on the Beach, Tynemouth, 1891 (w/c on paper)

Winslow Homer spent a year in the North-East painting though he used models the images he used are very evocative of  time and place and the struggles of man and the sea.

He certainly seems well traveled  as these next couple of paintings of Bermuda show

Shore at Bermuda, c.1899 (w/c over pencil on paper)

Glass Windows, Bahamas, c.1885 (pencil & w/c on paper)

To finish this post a delightfull image of a lady and dog, the dog is a West Highland Terrier by the looks of it.

The clouds were interesting Saturday Morning and the contrast between the blue sky and white cloud led to some good cloudscapes.

Winslow Homer 1836-1910

Summer Squall, 1904 (oil on canvas)

Summer Squall, 1904 (oil on canvas)

Driftwood, 1909 (oil on canvas)

Driftwood, 1909 (oil on canvas)

Two different paintings by Wilson Homer similar style but done in different years and at first glance you might be mistaken for thinking they are the same one. Same colours but different stories.
