When?

This is something I am working on at present.. I find it hard to ‘stop painting’ sometimes..it’s like my conscience is whispering to stop but I can’t. Physically, I feel compelled to work some of my paintings up and up until they are almost smothered.. that is where I ‘go’ when I surround myself with my subject..

Taken on my phone for now, this painting is finished as of right now. After talking to a visitor to my studio today about my work, on how it comes together and where it comes from, made me think a lot more about my art and the direction it’s going. This piece I thought was finished a week ago, until this afternoon. But now it is there I think. I am ecstatic. Come see it at my exhibition in February, opening March 3rd, Signal Arts Centre, Bray 🙂

‘Solace’

Oil, Mixed Media on Canvas, 61cm x 61cm

The light changes so much in the forest as I walk through it almost every day. I feel apart of the surrounding atmosphere and I absorb all of its virtues through all my senses.

The enormity of the trees,

the scent,

the colours,

the light,

the sounds,

the movements.
