Borin Van Loon: Artistry 2
Artistry II (oil on canvass)

Now showing its age a bit, this work is starting to crack. It is painted over an earlier work of Borin's with which he was unhappy. Sadly the ageing process and mishandling are taking their toll (so we cleaned up the jpeg a bit before posting it on the site).

Borin Van Loon: Artistry 1
Artistry I (oil on board)

A small painting which is the forerunner of the fully worked version at the top of the page.  Painted in Dollau, Mid-Wales, the branch frame contains either cracked glass or a spider's web. Or both. Sadly, this doesn't come out clearly on the scan.

Borin Van Loon: Barbed wire tree
Barbed wire tree (line on paper)
Another tree - not strictly a painting –even though it's in the 'Paintings' section, pedants – later used with other line drawings to accompany an article on ecology and the countryside in Country Life magazine, was a self-promotional piece, driven by the constant destruction of woodlands, paired with the cultural idiocy of spoiling 'attractions' by protecting them to death. Stonehenge springs to mind, but there are many other examples, see also the destroyed church on the Orford Castle page.
