Glastonbury Tor

England’s Glastonbury Tor is a mystical place. Its legends include fantastic
Arthurian lore and unique Christian history.

In this painting, I wanted to capture the exhilarating freshness of Glastonbury in the spring.

The scene is the Tor late in May when the flowers are in bloom and the grass is a vivid, new green.

This oil painting was painted in an Impressionist style.

Close to the painting, the colors are broad and almost abstract. From 30 feet away, the painting looks photographic.

Like most of my work, this photo doesn’t accurately represent the range of colors and depth in the painting.

Collection, Vernon and Barbara Pope, Kansas
