Rainforest Ravine

I have lots of new work but not much to say. It`s really winter here now. Things are quiet but I hear the rain in the gutters and the nights are blessedly long. We keep tiny Christmas lights on all winter for their cheer and I`m always amazed at how effective they are.
This is the time I wait for and do my best work in. It`s a dark, watery world perfect for painting.

Your lovely paintings are your words.

I love that you and John keep Christmas lights on throughout the winter!

I feel exactly the same way about winter, dark and 'watery' you made me smile with this description, unfortunately for me it is almost summer here...poo!Leesa

Hi Randall
I love the dark and quiet of the winter for painting too. Lovely piece.
Thanks Sheri

Twinkly lights DO lighten the spirits here, for sure. So glad to have these sunny days. Do you seal your yupo works with fixative? I've done that before. Lovely painting!
