The sun, of whose terrain we creatures are,
Is the director of all human love,
Unit of time, and circle round the earth
And we are the commotion born of love
And slanted rays of that illustrious star,
Peregrine of the crowded fields of birth,
The crowded lanes, the market and the tower.
Like sight in pictures, real at remove,
Such is our motion on dimensional earth.
Down by the river, where the ragged are,
Continuous the cries and noise of birth,
While to the muddy edge dark fishes move
And over all, like death, or sloping hill,
Is nature, which is larger and more still
..Charles Madge

Grateful colours of spring…the sun that penetrates even the darkest gloom at this time of year, breathes life into us all, and oh we’re grateful for it

Someone once asked “how do you paint snow”? I answered “I don’t”…painted in two colours, a northern scene in Lake of the Woods…Watercolour on Arches Not paper…view large…

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    Your strong but soft feeling colour always leaves me in awe. This is gorgeous work.

  • Thanks so much Jim…lately I’ve been mourning the loss of watercolours I did as a child..I used to illustrate poems I wrote…they are lost in the mists of time and moves from my past to my present….my parents did not save them, though they saved my oils…they were all vivid colored works, so it started a very long time ago..

    I see this as a very vivid dream of a harsh alien landscape – unusual colours in the vegetation on the banks of a stream with yellow “water” which is reflecting long porcuping-spine-like “trees”. Some of these are blocking an alien face formed by light from an unseen source. Perhaps there is a very jagged dark mountain behind which goes partway to forming the face. Lol, if it’s a dream, it’s full of amazing symbolism.

  • That’s certainly evidence that you have an incredible imagination Jan…the Canadian north is very beautiful and wild and I can imagine it taking on some alien shapes in the evening when the sun is setting…I am really happy you like the painting…thanks so much..
