This land that I love......

Mostly, I have been walking.
In the sleet,
the driving rain,
the blustery winds
and the brief windows of clear icy light between the storms.
Even at night.
I have been nightwalking often as autumn turned to winter. Last week's full moon rendered the moors as bright as day, and a sharp frost made the ground twinkle underfoot in the flickering midnight light.
We have watched the stars, and the stones, and slowly, slowly an immense collaborative project between Steve and me is unfolding.
There is new work, but it goes slowly too. Above is a painting of the Leigh Bridge Crossing.
Below is the painting that I am currently working on :
'The Woods Maiden and her King'

I'll stop there for now, and save the Christmas news for the next post! (In a day or two, I promise)

Love "The Woods Maiden and her King", beautiful, and full moons on the moor, looks amazing.

Love the 'Woods Maiden'! Good to have you back, and your new project sounds so exciting. How I long to have somewhere beautiful to walk, and to walk at night when the stars are out, and to be able to see them instead of the dull glow of streetlights and city. Soon, soon.........
