Tree of Wonders

Once in a while I feel compelled to paint surrealistic collections of images. When I am in the mood I never quite know what the eventual composition will be and sometimes I am surprised at the outcome.In this painting I have placed a collection of beautiful and fascinating objects amongst the branches of a tree. 'Herne' is depicted in what is actually the doorway of the cottage where I live. Complete with eyebrow window and lamp. There are many faces of tree spirits hidden within the branches and much symbolism such as the couple who represent love.
