'Clearing sky' oil on linen 30 x 40 cm.
'There is a society where
By the deep sea, and music,
in its roar.
Lord Byron 1788 - 1824
The quiet and grey days of January make one inclined to stay indoors and keep warm. The studio becomes a place where I can gaze out of the window and watch the birds soaring up into the wild sky, notice the garden birds searching for food and even playing in the trees especially the chattering sparrows. It seems as if time is standing still, so quiet are the days, but it is a good time, a time to be still and to simply be, to understand that each season has times to be busy and outside and times to be quiet and more contemplative.
Wishing you all happy painting days this January.
