Monaro treelines

Paintings

Oil on canvas, 90cm x 130cm
 
The Monaro is a vast flowing plain of grassland, occasionally punctuated by groups or lines of trees. I am fascinated by the idiosyncratic shapes of these trees and the way they are framed in their isolation by the brown land and huge sky. I have painted the trees at various times of the day in summer.
