Upland, North Moors Oils on canvas board 10 x 8 inches SOLD
A view uphill in late evening.
A full moon shines on lying snow and some tracks down the moor.
Painting at its best...lost in a world of make-believe. Time passes un-noticed as I create another painting about the dark moors. The garden goes un-tended but I am not troubled as there will be warmer weather soon to tempt me outside and make a start.
As I worked I noticed the diagonals like a zig-zag pattern and decided to leave them to depict the stone walls and tracks over this bleak moorland. The place is Lancashire and is a reminder of my stay there one January a few years ago. It snowed then and this fictional painting is really about my recollection of the occasion.
Having time and inspiration to paint each day is a great blessing.
