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)
