The afternoons have been warm with storm fronts moving in from the south-west. Perfect cloud-painting weather - until the rain strikes of course! I am inspired to keep working directly from the landscape - it is all-consuming, invigorating and exhausting all at once. The immediacy of it leaves no space for anything but the present. Almost like a spiritual practice; it requires total mindful attention and absorption.
This work 'Autumnal Afternoon' will soon be available as a limited edition print.
