Jo Tunmer, tree collection Nov 2010

My latest obsession with trees and leaves started in Canada during the summer.  However I do remember being obsessed with them as a child. We lived near a forest and my brother and I used to disappear for hours building dens. 

In our corner, suburban garden we have quite a collection: Magnolia, Apple, Weeping Willow, Beech to name a few.  There is also the very large walnut tree that overhangs my studio.  When the nuts are ripe the squirrels run up the tree and have a field-day cracking them and throwing the shells onto my roof.  It's highly entertaining.

Here are some photographs of where I have started my tree and leaves collection of perspex paintings.
