From imagination.

Inspired by the powerful biblical symbol of the Tree of Life, whose roots are in the highest heavens, and whose leaves are for the healing of the nations. Energies flow down through the Tree's roots, trunk, branches and leaves. In this way, the all-consuming, unimaginable, terrifying energy of the Divine is transformed into the healing and beneficial forces that sustain our world.

Price: Prints available on request (various sizes and costs). Please contact Lois for further details.

The following poem is reproduced here with kind permission from the poet, Philip Young:

Love the trees

I am love.
I love trees.
I create them with many roots extending through the soil.
And many branches providing flowers and fruit.
They provide homes for the animals and birds.
And shade for everyone.
Try to be like the trees
Grow roots downwards firmly linking yourselves to the soil.
Grow branches upwards reaching to the sky and to the heavens.
You too can produce much fruit
And be a blessing to the earth.
I will love you for this.

From imagination. To evoke dappled sunlight filtering through a woodland.

This painting was the inspiration for poet Marion Hartmann's German poem, below. An Englishverse translation by John Bülow-Osborne follows. Reproduced with kind permission of both poets.


Wo Licht und Farben sich in Seelentiefen finden,
und sich mit Menschenträumen ewig binden,
wo sich die Hoffnung stark hinzu gesellt,
dort tritt ein Werk nach außen in die Welt.
Nun will es dort im Menschen webend leben,
will Zukunftsängste tilgen, Stärke geben,
will am Betrachter hängend mit ihm gehen,
und fest als Seelenbildnis bei ihm stehen.

Marion Hartmann


Soul-deep, multi-coloured beams,
find their home in mankind's dreams,
driving sombre clouds apart
heralding this work of art.

It occupies the mind for long,
dispelling worries, making strong,
Guarding, guiding, making whole,
residing in a peaceful soul.

(John Bülow-Osborne)
