The above is a photo I took this time last year as I had to make a journey in treacherous snow conditions to the countryside. We had had a lot of snow and fortunately I was on a bus but at this time of year I am reminded of the poem I showed earlier in the blog "Stopping by woods on a snowy evening" by Robert Frost. Since I first wrote that post I have learnt the background to the poem which you can see by checking out the comments to that post. It is quite interesting. Wishing all the blog followers a Happy New Year and look forward to posting many more and exciting new paintings in 2012. Best Wishes Jim
I am a self-taught artist. I was born in Dublin. Since early childhood I have drawn and painted for my own enjoyment. I enjoy spending time in the countryside, as I am interested in the environment and the great outdoors. I paint figurative scenes & landscapes.
