Well, today's been quite exciting. We had some electrical work done on the house and I lost the internet all day. That sound you heard was me screaming 'INTERNET! INTERNET DON'T LEAVE ME! THINK OF BLOGVENT!' However, it's back now and all is right in the world, so here is today's picture...
|Winter Sunshine Robert Weir Allan|
I adore the purity of the colour in this work, clear and crisp. The white, green and blue are wonderfully striking, and it is a unexpectedly positive image of rural life, as opposed to the Clausen I posted a couple of days back. This chap and his shire horses are getting on with their work on a sparklingly good day and despite it being winter, he has had to roll his sleeves up. You get a sense that all is well in his world. He has two fine looking horses, a good plough and a clear sky. It makes a lovely change to see a rural picture where you don't suspect that everyone will starve the moment you take your eye off them. That's the kind of spirit we need approaching Christmas and the cold months ahead. Good-o.
My review of this marvellous book is here, together with links to buy it.
