Ghost Tree


Ghost Tree
Oil
18cm by 10cm or 7 inches by 4 inches
Finally we got some snow, I rushed out and spent the morning walking and doing some painting. 
It is another world, so quiet and still.  This tree is one that I usually climb, like a strange bridge, out over the river to get views over the water.  Today it lay with a blanket of snow turning it into a ghost tree, dark snakes of reflection in the cold water, the far bank an upside down forest as the snow silently fell.

Such a 'Sleepy Hollow' feeling to this piece. Intriguing.
