The write time

The write time 80×80 cms oil on canvas

This is like the kind of room I imagine a writer to might write poetry. I’ve begun writing a few lines of poetry on the back of some of my finished paintings. It’s something I hope to do through 2012 but only when it works with the piece so not every painting will have poetry on it. The first painting that I used this idea on left for it’s new home today. It was a scene that included a  large window and I used a few lines from Brendan Kenneely’s poem “Begin again”.

Begin again to the summoning birds
to the sight of light at the window,

My youngest is deeply disappointed that there is no snow this Christmas! So this snowy picture is for her. Personally I’m praying for snow as a little robyn whispered in my ear that Santa might be bringing her a toboggan!

Peace and good will to all (well the pets anyway)

I can’t promise peace and good will to all men but if the cats and dogs can do it maybe there’s hope for us yet.

In the meantime may I wish you and yours a very merry Christmas. Ró
