Portrait of a Tree

( a NZ Ent !? : )

oil - 72x24"


jp - "I put myself in this photo just to give some sense of scale for this simple painting of a pine tree...I have a strong affinity for trees, and I feel each one as individuals, ok I'm a little strange..ha!.... but when the lord of the rings came out and suddenly I saw my tree ( an ENT in Tolkiens words) come to life!!! ....I thought just .maybe I'm, not so crazy after all !!

...Have a look at the enlargement of this one and see if you can find his face(s)

..... I did this portrait of this pine, with some of his friends around,the NZ Fantail, and a native Pigeon up top! It's hard to see in the resolution of this shot, it maybe easier to see in the enlargement.....

I'm very fond of this painting,!


About John Parson


John was born in Toronto, Canada.

He graduated at the top of his class in 1970,from the Ontario College of Art in Canada and won the McLean Foundation Traveling Scholarship. In his own words," it was at this point that he began his education."

He has spent his life in the pursuit of the human spirit in the hope of giving it some form of visual expression. To this end he has practiced his painting and portraiture in many media and applied his art in an infinite variety of cultures and settings, and with each piece he has come closer to recognizing that special one within.

He has travelled the world , lived on many continents (20 yrs in New Zealand ) and now resides principally in Bancroft Ontario Canada as resident artist at the world recognized Grail Springs Spa .

He has practiced in the streets of Paris and in the Louvre, in oils and in pastel , on common subjects , and on the Masters. He has been featured in many one man shows and is collected on several continents!

As John says ,"It is the magic of combining the elusive human spirit with the beautiful world around us , that drives me these days", and his latest work is testament to his success.
