SAD has entered the uncharted regions of my mind yet I do value those geese.
Searching for relationships and values from absolutes, light to dark, is like searching for notes on a scale, you know they’re out there, but pinning down can be difficult. Once you’re in tune with your melody things, life, become a whole lot clearer. Absolutes of beginnings and ends need to be filled with values which make life worth living. Choose your notes and enjoy your time.
My available space on WordPress seems to be coming to an end. Perhaps this is where my journey as North Pennines Gallery comes to an end and a new beginning takes shape. Much to ponder.
Pleased to say I made 50 today. A decade passed in the blink of an eye.
Time is cheap. The Barnacle Geese have arrived and their chatter is a joyus thing on a cold November day.
Hectic few weeks. Squeezing any me time is proving almost impossible. Revisiting a familiar theme, I’ve chased the Swaledales along the North Pennines. It already feels as though Autumn is slip-sliding away. Sorrow for the borrow Paul.
My Wednesday art class reworked some old paintings. October seemed a fitting title.
I carried a sketch book to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with the sole intention of sketching on the go. This lady was taking a lunch time snooze in the middle of the park. I don’t think I could close my eyes let alone go to sleep in somewhere so public. Perhaps she was nursing a hangover?
Occasionally, the paints aren’t to hand and you need to use what’s closest. I often turn to my Caren D’ache pencils. I always thought it cheesey when people drew their children. I now make it a constant subject matter, a diary of sorts as to when they were young and I wasn’t so old. Sorry for any missed posts during my recent subatical. Normal Autumn service has resumed. SAD?, I’m not going there this year.

No doubt you’ll be familier with the phrase, ‘painting the town’, well that’s what I’m proposing, but replacing the ‘town’ with the ‘village,’ as I attempt to paint every tree on the village green from one angle or another. Inspiration has come via Edgar Payne and the wonderful work of John F. Carlson, two American artists who seem to hit the right note with me.
June, and the sun’s shining like a millionare. We (the family) visited Filey last weekend – a small seaside town in North Yorkshire, historically part of the East Riding of Yorkshire, located between Scarborough and Bridlington on the North Sea coast.
It was almost a memory from childhood, an old fashioned summer’s day when the sun was so hot you could burn in your own back garden. Then thoughts shift to departed family and friends, those we love and miss. The unsuspected changes and fortunes remind us to live life and enjoy every day. Corners will come, enjoy your sun.
Clouds the colour of a rugby bruise hang like a nagging worry over a low horizon.
Redcar, on my mind.
