40 x 40 cm, white pen and white pencil on black. Framed £190

When we fall at the end, the colour of our leaf or the type of tree from which we came is irrelevant. We all become the nourishing compost for the next generation.

(One of my two pieces, both chosen as finalists in the Society of Graphic Fine Artists at the Society’s Exhibition at the Menier, Gallery in London.)
