This series of paintings, Fallen Trees in the Ravines, Day and Night, interpret Brodie's, observations on his Norfolk County, tobacco farm land surroundings. They represent the strips of forested ravines that cut into the land and provide shelter for wildlife to live and move around us. Also ever present in these paintings, is the cold, cold winter that surrounds us each and every year.
Brodie is married to stained glass artist, Louise Hale. In 1995 they moved from Toronto to a circa 1840 wood cottage they bought in Norfolk county. He started painting again at that time and has done so ever since. Brodie now earns his living primarily as a carpenter/furniture maker, and during the winter, with less carpentry work available, he fills his time with painting, and his music. A full bio of Brodie will soon be posted.
