About the Work
"I like the way the artist uses contrast in the painting to create beautiful shadows in the tree trunk. Throughout the painting I noticed that she uses a lot of pastel colours which makes me think of a spring morning. With the hints of white in the apple tree supporting the idea of spring with its flowers. I love the little dirt path coming into the foreground because it adds something else to observe and follow in the painting."
