At The End of the Day

This old warrior stands apart from the trees which surround it on the headland. It's seen better days come and go and it now leans away from the reckless crowd which jockeys for life. It won't be long before a strong storm comes and it crashes into the lake.

I intentionally painted the old warrior in gold and sepia tones. He has lived a glorious life and has earned his colours to celebrate his life.

When the day comes that it tumbles into the lake, it will become a protective haven for fish to swim among its submerged branches and new life will begin where the old left off.
