Rosehill Street 2

Spent around 5 hours working on this piece today..I took it with me to ST. James School for my art class. One little girl asked me what part of the park it was showing. When I said Rosehill Street, she said she recognised the railings under the trees.

I find I am drawn to the Arboretum..reluctant to miss a leaf that changes by the moment and is beautiful in all times. I long to be the 'champion' of the trees..the gaurdian of beauty..I am reminded of a wonderful poem written by an old friend of mine called Carol. She wrote of "The trees that live with us"..creating an intimate but cathedral like ambience to their longevity. I too feel that reverence to their towering majesty of green and gold.
