The Gathering


Oil on Belgian Linen,
40 x 20″





This is a framed original oil painting, on Claessens portrait-grade Belgian linen – which is a very fine, archival linen, considered to be the best quality material available for artist canvas. The frame is a custom wood float frame, black. 1.5″ deep with a satin finish.

About the art:

Last summer was an especially dry, smoky season. Hard on the environment, hard on all beings. When fall leaves began gathering at the shoreline, the first rain of the season came, and I felt like dancing. Raindrops bounced on the stagnant river surface, causing bubbles, ripples and tiny splashes – joyous, playful and childlike. The sky was misty, beautiful, reminding me of my native Wales, where we never have a shortage of rain. A very good day.
