This mixed media painting of Callanish represents all that I feel about Midwinter. When I stop, really stop, the exhaustion I have been trying to out-run catches up with me. It’s so hard to allow myself to feel it, to slow right down and cease from ‘doing’. But I am and I will continue to do so. My days are spent in the studio now, with my woodburner toasting me, enjoying the one aspect of this time of year that inspires me – making my own Solstice cards and personalised presents. I’ve learned to ‘take back’ this time of year from the commercial and make it meaningful. These cards are for friends and family but I intend that, in the year ahead, I will be spending more effort on making these designs available for sale. Bear with me!
