I start painting again!

Its been a while. But this week I set off with paints and easel from my parents' house in Northamptonshire and trudged across muddy fields until I came to this ditch/stream in full spate.  Around it was a little copse, an island of vigour in the bare sterile fields. 

I would like to move into a more abstract idiom and I think there are hints here of the way to go?
