.......inspired by wild and quiet places.
November notes from my Art Journal


I appreciate the proximity I have now to woodland but when a city dweller the parks and their trees were a ‘go to’ place for time out to get the head straight and feel the wind whipping up the leaves. Autumn walks today with my dog through the woods along the Coquet gives me time for a thoughtful working process, and many ideas are put in order. I hope you too can find a tree to love and remember to catch a falling leaf to make a wish!

Celebrate the power of trees to inspire.
"Trees deserve to be celebrated. Each year the whole of UK society should unite in celebrating the value and importance of trees and woods to people."
On the last Saturday in November each year, as part of National Tree Week, local communities, schools, organisations and individuals should mark a national ‘Tree Charter Day’ with activities and events that celebrate and reinvigorate the relationship between people and trees.
The trees and woods around us are clues to how our history has shifted and our culture has changed over centuries. The diverse cultural associations of trees bring multicultural communities together and can foster a sense of belonging in the natural landscape. Our rich tree heritage should be remembered, celebrated and experienced, and Tree Charter Day is the perfect opportunity!
