Inspired in the studio this afternoon by the sights and sounds of the Pacific Spirit Park from this morning’s walk: the music of the wind swaying the trees above and the rustling of myriads of falling leaves in the rain alighting on the trails and woodland floor below.
I couldn’t help but be inspired by the privilege of experiencing such precious moments as these.
A good Friday afternoon on Good Friday in the studio. Wishing everyone a happy and safe Easter weekend as our thoughts are once again of those in Washington on yet another sad day in the American capital.
Today’s painting from the studio this afternoon is from the Nature Trail in the Pacific Spirit Park, which we enjoyed on our walk this morning. After I left the studio I learned that while I was painting another mass shooting was taking place in Boulder Colorado, which is why I am dedicating my painting of this special place to those who lost their lives in another senseless crime that has left more loved ones grieving once again who are all in our thoughts tonight.
From days of pencilling a return to painting in the studio this afternoon with this Pacific Spirit Park study – acrylic on paper.
Back home to an afternoon in the studio after a wonderful family weekend away.
Miss them both already.

No walk in the woods today, so the woods came to the studio instead.

Painted today to honour the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day, which marks the end of the war in the Pacific and the Second World War. Lest we forget.

No words, just total awe in the Pacific Spirit Park today.
