At last the wind has changed. For so long now the wind has brought warm rain from the south, frm off the warm African seas. Now at last it is coming off Russia, as the east plunges into a late winter. I love the cold, clear days and frosty nights. Perhaps we may even be able to see the meteor shower when it comes. So far this year every astronomical event has been clouded out.
The painting above is off Snowdonia, the highest range of mountains in Wales. It was painted very quickly using acrylic on canvas in very broad strokes using rags, tissues, large brushes and a lot of speed.
