Passing of the Hours

Yesterday you saw one of the walks I enjoy. When the weather is inclement and I have some spare time, I like to paint.

Sometimes I have very definite ideas or requests to paint - and sometimes I just don't!
On those occasions, I create a little set up, draw and paint it.

This painting is one of those, it only took me an hour and a half to paint. Almost a doodle! The time it took gave rise to its name, also.

  1. Only an hour and a half? Wow! You have a gift for "seeing" what you want to transfer to the paper and exactly how it's going to look on the paper... You've captured the serenity of this little scene beautifully.

  2. Really lovely. The shadows cast by the set keep it from being still - there is the movement of a hours in it.
