work in progress
3 canvases each 80cm square
this was the repeat refrain on a 10 day meditation retreat I did a couple of years ago in Nepal
applies in all walks of life!
3 paintings in my studio this morning, stuck, frustrated, unresolved
so ‘start again’!
2 new canvases, 80cm square
3 layers, wet on wet, of contrasting colours, oil and cold wax medium
then some different powder pigments
I’ll go back to them later today or tomorrow, when they are drier but still tacky, and work ovee with a roller
and then start again
where are we from and where are we going
just colour, pigment, wax on wood, like us just matter
how do they develop, where do they come from
where to now?
the life and direction of my paintings is fascinating me just now, there’s a ‘zone’ sometimes when I’m making them when I’m not sure whether any decisions are being made, or if they have a life or destination of their own
may I be well
may I be happy
may I be filled with loving kindness
may you be well
may you be happy
may you be filled with loving kindness
may she be well
may she be happy
may she be filled with loving kindness
may he be well
may he be happy
may he be filled with loving kindness
may they be well
may they be happy
may they be filled with loving kindness
may all be well
may all be happy
may all be filled with loving kindness

I have booked my flights to Nepal for November! So exciting.
Will be staying for a while in Kathmandu, then off to Pokhara for 10 days meditation. Then a few days on a farm in the Himalayan foothills. I will post more details when I know them As I said yesterday, I’m not always in the WildWest of Donegal. Sometimes I’m somewhere else!
