Beyond The Thorns

Abundant still-life depicting a luscious pomegranate poised in a pool of luminous Winter's light surrounded by thorny branches with ripe red rose hips.

A celebration of the gifts of Autumn to Winter. Of ripe offerings to the birds. The pale pink wild rose which proliferated the hedgerows around my home now becomes great swathes and spiny arches of bright cadmium fruits.
