Good morning everyone,

I hope you're staying well at home and keeping a positive outlook on life!

I've been fortunate to be able to spend lots of time pondering over painting and creating. Sometimes it's tough staying motivated I must admit. I find my underlying mood creeping into my work. I'm trying to let what comes out onto the canvas become a clear reflection of how I'm feeling and to just let it be.

In my recent painting " Oblivious Optimism",  the mood I'm feeling is evident in the background and throughout the textures placed on the gnarly old willow tree. Notice the happiness you felt when you saw the Red breast of the Mother Robin, the warmth of her nest and those amazing Blue eggs!

We don't need to feel despair, only hope! If God will see to the needs of a robin, of course he will look after all of us!
