The Yellow Wood

A little acrylic painting I did yesterday, inspired as you might have guessed by Robert Frost's Road Not Taken. I love the irony and wistfulness of that poem, it's a shame it gets misread so often.

Anyway this was done using my painting 'trowel', a new toy which I love experimenting with and which is much more freeing than brushes, for me at least.

For sale here


  1. I can see why you feel it's more freeing for you - this one has incredible energy and flow, it's bold and strong, and beautiful. More, please!

  2. me again! i forgot to mention that birch is a quintessentially canadian tree, and one I've loved my whole life, ever since I saw a drawing of it in a children's book. Which makes me love this piece even more :-)
