Painter David Hockney - very popular and working big


Bigger Trees Near Warter (2007)

Hockney "has forsaken sun-kissed California for the more dour climes of [his native] East Yorkshire, whose rainy hues and uncertain skies provide the inspiration for the large-scale landscapes that form the core of his blockbuster show at the Royal Academy, opening in January".

Hockney's personal credo is “I paint what I like, when I like and where I like”.

The work of the affable artist has won an enormous public following. For what it's worth, the painting Bigger Trees makes me feel thoughtful and elated.
