Stump

You will notice I tend to keep the titles of works short, if not terse. I find people usually put their own interpretations on what is in front of them. My response to a particular object can change from the initial reaction as the painting or drawing progresses. The viewer's response can be quite varied and they may see a work from a different standpoint to mine. But enough of the philosophy of art.
This piece is my most recently completed painting, done as usual in acrylic on canvas. This work is 66cm wide by 102cm tall. An ancient stump standing like some sentinel in the misty depths of and even older part of the forest; ancient coppice which has become engulfed by the relatively new conifer plantation.
