“Landscape Plotted and Pieced” Greetings Card


Beautiful, quality art prints on greetings cards to send to loved ones for any occasion.

“Landscape Plotted and Pieced” is the title of this painting, and is taken from a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins called “Pied Beauty”. Says Sandy,

“It’s one of my favourite poems. It talks about how the landscape is a teeming composite of textures, patterns, colours, movement and light.

“When I went to my stack of canvases to start a new painting, I found that one had a bit of a rip in it, and since the canvas was quite big, I didn’t want to waste it, so I glued a patch of canvas to the front and another to the back of the rip, (actually making it stronger than it was before!) which then led me to reconsider what I wanted to paint.

“I thought of Hopkins’ poem, which made me think of all the country walks we have taken in our beautiful countryside, especially in Autumn. I have often returned home with my mind filled with images of falling leaves, blue distances, bare branches, cawing rooks and crows and the feeling that under the earth there is a hidden secret world where countless myriads of roots delve down into the earth, drawing up water and nutrients from the soil, with a huge network of fungal strands which connect the roots of different trees together, enabling them to “talk” to each other.

“So I wanted the painting to reflect the patchwork of images stored in the memory, of a country walk in Autumn.
The painting is mixed media, employing oil paint and elements of collage such as tissue paper, real leaves and a crow’s feather.”
