The Green Man

'The Green Man' is the Pagan representation of resurrection and rebirth, also a symbol of fertility. This original watercolour painting created with Daniel Smith paints on Arches paper depicts my interpretation of him.

The story behind this painting is that one night, after watching a couple of episodes of 'The Vikings' on TV, I had the most intense and vivid dream about the Green Man. The image stuck with me the entire following day so I decided to do my best to portray what was in my head. People are asking if it's a self portrait! I suppose there is a resemblence, unintentional though.

This traditional country style painting would look ideal in a traditional country cottage, or if anyone happens to own a pub called 'The Green Man', well you need this painting in your bar.


Measuring approximately 10.5 x 14 inches, this painting is presented in a pale mount within an oak finished frame to a total size of about 17.75 x 21.75 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
