New Year Dawning Oils on gessoed 140lb paper £ 120 $ 150
Warmth in the sky on the dawn of a new year.
My studio has come into the house for the winter.
It has become too cold to stand outside painting for several hours.
This is the first piece of work in my new place and it was difficult.
Several times it was scraped back, rubbed down and nearly scrapped.
Then...suddenly the tide turned and a glimmer of hope appeared.
The temptation to add more must be resisted.
I stood back and studied what I had done.
There was atmosphere and a subtle sense of peace.
I wish you all a happy and peaceful year.
