… I’m still working on this water inspired canvas. I usually just start painting straight onto the surface but this particular painting needed some pencil shapes to guide me … it may work – we shall see when it’s completed! What inspires you to paint and what’s been the most challenging subject for you recently? Let me know!!
Inspired by my walk in an autumny Belfast earlier today… this is a textured acrylic 20×15 inch canvas … enjoy!
Okay guys…this is the little canvas that will be the giveaway! You DON’T EVEN HAVE TO SHARE … just tell me where you would put the painting if you were to win…and then I will get someone else to have a read through the replies and the winner will be announced this time next Thursday! So… just comment to your heart’s content ! Looking forward to reading all your comments either here or on my Facebook page!

I have recently returned from 80 hours of silence at the most gorgeous Benedictine abbey at Rostrevor, Northern Ireland … it was quite an experience (even though it was my 20th such retreat…but the longest yet!). It has been a challenging year so far and this time away was just what I needed. I had thought of posting one or two photos but to give you all a real sense of the place … I’m popping them into a slideshow so that you too can appreciate the beauty of the place … enjoy!!
