This is the time of year of light-obsession as we try to stave off the darkest days of winter. Shouldn't we embrace the darkness? We should take time to rest in the shadows. Find inner peace and self-reflection to help us learn and grow. Look up into the star filled long cold nights and embrace the moonlight. If you listen carefully the silent nights are beautiful.
I put my paints and brushes down to absorb these darker days and revisit all the artwork I created over the last year. They are a sort of visual diary of time spent by the sea, in my garden and my studio. My mixed media works are all about imagination and creating a new story. My oil paintings share my obsession with the ever changing sea. And now I am happy to send them out into the world! Many have found homes and I am thankful.
May you all find calm and beauty as you delve into the darkness and may you be uplifted by the return of the light.
Love and Light, AXO
