Gaia Awakens

A walk along the river Test at Mottisfont (near Romsey, NT) provided a sense of place for this painting.  I was able to walk close to the flow of the river, and able to take a closer observation of the surrounding reflections in the water.  It is the season of Winter with snowdrops heralding that Spring is on its way.  Gaia, Mother Earth, is in the form of the tree and is beginning to stir and as this happens she is transforming the silver winter into a spectacle of colour.
