During my recent vısıt to Koycegiz, I grabbed a photo of the fantastıc Eucalyptus trees that tower over the Tourist Offıce. They are common enough but their sheer size is always impressive. Strangely, and I wonder about the trivia stored in my head, but as I painted in the black and white structure of these trees I had an unsettling sense of deja vu. Eventually I realized that a melting clock draped over a branch would conjure up a Dali landscape. The surrealism faded as the foliage grew.
