So glad to be painting again! The back end of last year was so hectic I could not settle into painting. I need time, and space and most importantly, head space. I'm not lacking inspiration, - it's wild, free and all around me all the time. But there were so many other projects and deadlines and happenings crowding in on my space. It's nice to empty out again, allow myself to clear the brain, take a breath, make space. This is a picture of the fence at the back of our "field" looking over cow pasture. The snow has blown across the vast fields and exposed soil and grass. I stood there for a long time remembering the seasons that passed, the bright green of Spring, the tall yellow grass of Summer, the stubby brown thatch left after the bales were taken away and the cows were gone. I'm calling this piece, "Memories of Summer"
"Memories of Summer", 20"x10"
I work from my Art Room in my home on Vancouver Island. I'm surrounded by impressive landscapes that never fail to bring endless inspiration!
