Yew Trees #59


Yew Trees #59 description:

“This is one of the oldest trees in St Mary’s churchyard. In the winter of 1997, a large snow storm hit the Painswick area depositing a heavy wet snow. The snow’s excessive weight caused severe damage to the topiaried trees. The church had the damaged trees cut back. When I returned the following summer, I was shocked to find that a whole avenue of yew trees had been reduced to broccoli shaped stumps. I did this drawing as a way to help restore the dignity and beauty of this ancient tree. This drawing inspired me to look at the trees in a completely different way. I began focusing on the internal structure of the boughs from this point on in my work.” — Greg Thatcher
