Memories

Sometimes  you catch the edge of a scent from the past
, or a combination of colours that remind you of a childhood dress that you loved so much. This painting is a celebration of those memories.

Pears and Roses

My pink/green/white roses are still going strong and the pears were a gift from a neighbours garden.

Very Plum Plums

Sweet, juicy and the most beautiful colours, I just had to  interrupt what I was doing and get back to painting still life again. Has anyone seen The English Patient??

Change

“Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy. I crave solitude yet also crave people. I want to pour life and love into everything yet also nurture my self-care and go gently. I want to live within the rush of primal, intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit and contemplate. This is the messiness of life - that we all carry multitudes, so must sit with the shifts. We are complicated creatures, and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding. Be water. Flowing, flexible and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to accept all changes, yet still led by the pull of steady tides. It is enough.”
Victoria Erickson

Peace

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
John Muir, The Mountains of California

Poppy Fields

Not exactly obvious, but the fun in an abstract is to get it just right. Have I achieved that my friends??

White Ladder by David Gray is one of my top ten albums, I must have listened to it a million times and it always sounds good.
