Painting to escape Christmas

I did a bit of painting in an attempt to switch off from Christmas. It worked for a short while. I visited a few galleries while I was in the Canadian Rockies. If you’re ever in the area, I can highly recommend Canmore for a wander about. It is not too far from Banff, but much less touristy….


Beneath the heavy soils resting in the deep Lies the ancient ember of a spirit wrapped in sleep. Precious adoration a fire burning white A becoming, unrelenting a fury in the night. Basking in our sentience we grasp for that enchantment to capture in exquisite breath still essence of contentment.
