This little painting is small and chunky, measuring 4 x 5 inches by 1.5 inches deep. Should it be framed? Maybe not. It looks quite good placed on a shadowy shelf, which heightens the dark drama of the subject, whereas the painting's small dimensions might make it seem lost on a wall - unless part of a group that is. I've placed it for sale on my page at US based Absolute Arts here.

Source of endless fascination - how many times have I photographed the sky to the West from the back garden? Light, shade, high contrast and movement. This dramatic and beautiful skyscape will reappear in a small seascape later on no doubt!
The above photo was taken yesterday afternoon - excuse the sloping horizon, there was a strong, unrelenting wind blowing - but what a spectacle, being in the midst of so much openness and space is such a buzz. Click to enlarge.

Heard the Khachaturian Masquerade Waltz (previous post) on Radio 2 whilst washing the dishes earlier on - it's so uplifting, graceful, exciting and passionate - makes me want to dance, dance, dance and it doesn't matter that I can't waltz, does it?
Also a quote to ponder and yes, that really is his name!
Jack Russell quote
“Good things to do in life...Forgive, Love others, Praise, Be thankful, Give, Take opportunities, Show your feelings, Smile, Hug, Move more eat less, Pray, Write letters, Have you time, Travel, Touch nature, Help others in need.”
(Will try, but may not always succeed!)
