When in Suffolk a few weeks ago, it was particular pleasure to meet the well known tree and landscape artist, Alan Bennett and his wife. Alan paints in oils and a speciality is landscapes with a profusion of trees. Even in the setting of a spacious landscape, the tree species can be instantly identified. Alan has an abiding love of trees and this is clearly apparent in his paintings. His work has been exhibited in the Nature in Art Gallery and Museum) at Twigworth near Gloucester) and other galleries, particularly in East Anglia. If you feel strongly about trees, do look out for Alan’s paintings.
