The subject of children’s crayon doodles as well as Monet’s poplars, the graceful tree is a salve of cool shade on a blistering day and may provide sweet fruits and the bones of homes. Trees were favored nature motifs of British artist Philip Sutton (1928- ), sometimes conveyed in a mosaic of rainbow hues. His woodsy landscapes can be almost otherworldly in their heightened coloration, and the viewer will doubtless be drawn into inviting scenes sparkling with birds and gems of breezy blooms, so magical and irresistible are they.
