To Earth We Return

To Earth We Return by Kirsten Harris

Why do humans find it so hard to accept that none of us are getting out of here alive? Me included! Life is short!

My dad told me that all the avenues of beech trees in Britain were planted after the first world war to commemorate the dead. A row of these ancient trees border my garden. For years I have photographed the trees around the farm behind me on my daily winter walk. Many of them are dying now. These trees, both beech and Scots pine, plus living with horses have inspired many of my drawings.

Before I die I plan to plant a lot more trees. I thank the horses for that desire. I have art to make to do it!
