Summer Evening Showers
This painting is my first real attempt at a painting since my accident. It is not by any means one of my better attempts at painting but it has done a few things for me. Firstly it has got me in front of my easel and I have left not feeling entirely downcast with the experience. It has give me a painting that will allow me to return to the wall in out kitchen the painting I took from that wall to replace one of the two paintings I sold last week. I cannot leave bare walls in the place where I hang because it is rather obvious we have taken down pictures that were fitted to the wall not to be taken down.
The other thing I learned was that my wife kind of liked the painting I took away even though she had never before expressed this to me. Last night my son spotted straight away I had removed it and insisted I bring it back. What is it they say? “"A prophet is not without honour except in his hometown and in his own household." So this painting means a lot to me even though it is no masterpiece. Let me just say it has shown me that appreciation is not always spoken.
I could say this little painting has cast a little light in dark corners for me. No pun intended.
