These are miniature canvases 4x4 inches each. Still deciding if this needs more work..

It's been fun trying different colour palettes for this miniature mountain landscape. One more is coming up depicting the Northern Lights using purple/blue and green.

Irish Poet Kathleen O'Meara wrote the following poem in 1897


And the people stayed home. 

And read books,

and listened,

and rested,

and exercised,

and made art,

and played games,

and learned new ways of being,

and were still.

And listened more deeply.

Some meditated, some prayed, some danced.

Some met their shadows.

And the people began to think differently.

And the people healed.

November is always labelled a dark and dreary month, but in many ways, I like it because of that. Long dark mornings, and early evenings make for cozy inside time. I especially like the warm light that comes from a window. It's warm and inviting, like the visible heart of a home. 

I experimented with this painting on a small wood panel and liked the way the oil paint soaked into the grain to create interesting effects on the evening sky and grass. 

Why do my painted 2D structures always look like dollhouses?:p

Made a few of these mountain triptychs in oil. These have been fun as they quick and easy and I can try out different colours to see how they might translate on to larger substrates.
