Irish Blessing.

May the good earth be soft under you
when you rest upon it,
and may it rest easy over you when,
at the last, you lay out under it,
And may it rest so lightly over you
that your soul may be out
from under it quickly,
and up, and off,
And be on its way to God.

My interpretation of Diane Shuster’s wonderful photo Direct Thy Gaze Within My Soul
This painting is part of SoJie 12- Workshop of Photographers matching up with Traditional Artists
Faber Castell watersoluble pencils, gouache paint, Parker pen, watercolour paper.

My painting makes me think of a place in South Africa called Magoebaskloof, Mpumalanga.
