Studio Visit

Studio Visit

This is my studio here in Galicia and its sunshine morning. Lottie and I work here most days when of course we are not tasked with the demands of the farm and garden.

I will update the home page with current work and projects.

Yesterday it was even warmer than today and it seems a shame to be inside so I painted our Cockerel, the one we call The Fop. I often paint outside when the weather is willing, drawing from life is akin to the daily practice of scales for the concert pianist. It sometimes resets the mind.

The Journey

” The Moon and The Sun are eternal travel, the years to come are travel too. For those whose life flows on a boat, for those who age by drawing their horse the reins, life is the journey, the journey is home. For years now I, too, was carried away by a piece of cloud that was moving by air, and woke up in me the longing of wander “
