A vision in the forest, 2023, acrylic and collaged linen and paper on canvas, 100 x 100 x 5 cm

For several years, Caspar David Friedrich has been a buzz-word between me and my daughter in these immense Scottish forests, woods and plantations. So no wonder I have, almost unconsciously, been photographing her and her husband, and some other people, dwarfed by trees on our walks. Now these images are beginning to infiltrate the paintings.

If you read my blog for March and the first one in April, you will find lots of details about the evolution of this painting.
