A Work In Progress

A Work In progress

Well I wonder what it was about yesterday that was so different from other days. I ran in one of the heaviest downpours I haver ever ran in, that was one thing. But having got over that, I got back to writing a blog, something I have not been able to do in ages.

More importantly, I managed not only to put a canvas on my easel I managed to throw some paint in its direction.

I began on this painting, today I hope to complete it.

While in france I ran every morning. On these morning runs I saw vineyards, wild flowers especially poppies. In the distance was always the imposing Pyrenees with little villages at the foot of them.

This painting tries to capture those memories in one painting. Early morning runs always give me solitude and peace with the added bonus of natures beauty, I hope this painting will capture this.

  2. I would love to go to France and see vineyards like those in the painting. It looks like a great sight to see.
