In the early 90’s we rented a cottage in England near the village of Bidford-on-Avon so we could explore that section of the Cotswolds. I photographed images that appealed to me. One was the prop-supported old tree on the riverbank.

As I always do, I took many photographs of the houses, the landscape and the flowers. These photographs were the basis for four murals that I created for Janet Lynn’s Bistro in Waterloo. Each of these pieces is 4 feet by 10 feet and forms a background for intimate dining. Funnily enough I had composed several of these pieces that I intended to do just as large easel paintings. I had no thought at that point that they would ever be the basis for such large murals.
