    Description

    When I saw trinity Arcade I was struck by its beautiful Victorian style. And right in the middle was a floor safety cone, ‘slippery when wet’. It seemed to me to be almost a warning to guard our heritage and unique monuments to our past. And it also formed a fascinating juxtaposition between old fashioned craftsmanship and modern day mass produced plastic items.

    Trinity Arcade harks back to its history as an arcade for trustees of the Trinity Church from 1923. In 1989, the arcade was expanded to three levels and today it includes cafés, clothing, jewellery, antiques, watch repairs, hairdressers, rare books and antiques.

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.

    So good!
