November 2020 innings and late postings from October

 I hope you are all ready for the 'Tree of Life' innings on Tuesday 17 November.

The Tree of Life is an ancient and universal symbol appearing in religions and myths from all over the world, including Judaism, Islam, and Norse mythology. I found Wikipedia very useful on the background and there are of course images that can be found on Google Images. Klimt and Kiefer are amongst the artists who have drawn upon the imagery. Yggdrasil is the Tree of Life in Norse mythology.

Moira Coupe produced this image for an Islington Art Society on line Zoom crit session:

Pictures to me for posting on the blog.

Meanwhile there are some late October images, some of which many of you have already seen but have not been included in the blog before.

Diana Butement sent these images from Langton Matravers in Dorset;
