Treeline

 


Treeline

A gentle separation, of field and field, crop and crop, properties, a treeline waves. Far friendlier than a fence, and a place for the wildlings to travel to, from and along, poplars, maple, sometimes evergreen. Green punctuation marks upon the landscape.

Swirls


Swirls

Across undulation hills the tractors dance, in their wake the soil swirls, lines and rhythms to catch the artists eye, patterns in the earth, visual music.

Where The Sidewalk Ends

 

Where The Sidewalk Ends
This quite literally is where the sidewalk ends on our morning walk. The end of the street is still a field with a view, but not for long, subdivisions are fast gobbling up the surrounding lands.

Tor

 

                                                                           Tor

 Tor, Celtic hill fort, an ancient place of safety, now a place of peace and dreams, surrounded by fields of wild daffodils, and grazing sheep.  If only all battle grounds could be this way.

Row On Row


Row On Row the crops grow. Fields dip and roll.
 Intermittent stream beds break the expanse,
 stretch into the distance and offer passage for the wildlings, to distant green oasis.

Across The Field
Distant silos beckon the weary farmer home, not just  storage, but a beacon too, tall amongst the trees and crops a guide at the end on a long hard day.

Country Roads weave their way through the fields and bush. Game trails to buggy tracks to vehicle traffic the surface changes, but the wandering ways remain, permanently connecting us to the past.

Road To The Lake

 

Road To The Lake
Taking the back roads to Tobermory to catch the Chi-cheemaun is for many Ontarians a summer tradition. All roads lead to the lake, and good memories.

There was a time, when life moved at a slower pace, in rhythm with the seasons. Posts were for stringing fence lines, not online. Was life better then? or is that just a romantic notion.  I'll leave it to you to decide.

Donnybrook Island

 

Donnybrook Island, 6x6, glazed acrylic, $95.00

available at Art Emporium Port Stanley:  contact

Pockets of life, islands of diversity, home to many, safe haven.

Juction

 


Junction, 6x6, glazed acrylic, $95.00


Junction: A place of meeting or joining. Once, all was forest, then came the colonizers, who took down much of the forest. Pockets remain, and as it is the will of nature to grow and also to colonize, the junctions where field and forest meet are the site of a subtle battle.


Stalking the Marsh

 

Stalking the Marsh, 4x4, glazed acrylic, $60.00


Available at Art Emporium Port Stanley: contact

The  coastal salt marsh of the South Carolina Low Country, is the birth place of much of the ocean's life. It's also home to many who feed on the creatures that are born, and live there. The magnificent herons, and their kin, are a constant presence-stalking the marsh.

Kettle Valley

 

Kettle Valley 12x16, glazed acrylic, $240.00

We walk with our extra large pup, along the Kettle Creek almost daily, unless there's a monsoon and the valley becomes a lake. This is the view from the crest of the hill, just before the trail head. It's our happy place.

I drive past this vista regularly, there’s a rutted farm track that goes through the fields and the land tells tales of retreating glacial flood waters, followed by forests then farms. These fields are zoned industrial use, one by one they’re disappearing under concrete and asphalt.

Some times the fields seem to go on as far as the eye can see, an illusion of straight fence lines, and undulating land.



Through The Dunes

Where we go for our annual 'snowbird' the dunes are shaped by wind and water, every year they're different, and in hurricane years...much is lost to the angry sea.

I'm fascinated by the spaces between. Little bits of wild, left behind by the plough, too rough or inconvenient for the ploughman, but loved by the wildlings.
