I was attracted to these three trees standing by the river. They grow on a small mound of earth with a group of people picnicking, and it made me think of the crucifixion scene. So, the Thames become the river of eternity, and the wind the winds of destiny. It was a difficult thing to do, and I finished it in March this year and kept it aside or a while.
The tree on the left is broken and represents the disbelieving thief, and on the right the thief who did believe. It was painted in oils. Across the river is Columbia warehouse. The river has been tried to represent in a mystical way as a twisting, turning, interwoven blue cable of water. The invisible wind is represented by ghostly lines weaving through the trees.
