In the Artist’s Words: The idea for this piece was to convey grief through an environment. I love painting ruins and forgotten spaces, so I decided to paint a village that had burnt down a while ago and was slowly being overtaken with vegetation. We decided to take this a little further with the clearing clouds and budding blossoms on the tree, to convey a feeling of hope after the passage of time.
