About the Work
Trees are the life-blood of the earth and I’m an unashamed tree-aholic. Quite natural then that I should find myself searching the Sarjeant’s collection for tree images. This is my favourite. How fortunate it happens to be an Edith Collier. Despite the painting having been completed a long time ago, the simplicity and use of colour creates a contemporary ambience. I would love to have this painting hanging in my home.
