Exhibiting at Buckingham Palace

 Rub The Sleep from Your Eyes' Oil on gold leaf gesso panel. 90x87cm  I'm pleased to announce that this painting is heading to Buckingham palace where it will be part of a public exhibition, "Prince and Patron', this summer marking Prince Charles 70th birthday . From July the 21st to September the 30th.  Hope you can make it to the show.  This panting is a celebration of nature , culture, abundance, diversity and harmony.  It is an appeal for a re-connection to the life force that animates this world and all the living creatures in it. It is a call for a future where humans take on a participatory and contributory role in the natural world rather than being just consumers of it. A world that nurtures the wilderness and allows it to flourish not only as a means for commerce but for it’s own sake and because of love.   https://www.royalcollection.org.uk/collection/themes/exhibitions/prince-and-patron/buckingham-palace

London Art Fair 2017

 The London Art fair opens tomorrow and is on until January the 22nd.  'The Scots Pine' will be there!  In the Crane Kalman booth. For sale.  It is a portrait of a tree I know well on the outskirts of Wytham woods in Oxford.  Lost       A native American Elder was asked,    “What shall we do if we get lost?”   Stand still.  The trees before you and the bushes beside you are not lost.  Wherever you are is a place called here,  and you must treat it as a powerful stranger  both asking to know and be known.  Listen.  The forest whispers,  “I have made this place, you can leave and return once again  saying, here.”  No two trees are the same to Raven,  no two branches the same to Wren.  If what a tree or a branch does is lost on you,  you are truly lost.  Stand still.  Listen.  The forest knows where you are.  Let it find you.   by David Wagoner

Lost  

A native American Elder was asked,

“What shall we do if we get lost?”

Stand still.  The trees before you and the bushes beside you are not lost.

Wherever you are is a place called here,

and you must treat it as a powerful stranger

both asking to know and be known.

Listen.  The forest whispers,

“I have made this place, you can leave and return once again

saying, here.”

No two trees are the same to Raven,

no two branches the same to Wren.

If what a tree or a branch does is lost on you,

you are truly lost.

Stand still.  Listen.

The forest knows where you are.

Let it find you.
