I was in an indifferent mood this morning, slept in late after taking my chemo tablets knowing full well I should be going to the funeral of a friend in Allihies at 1pm. But I had had a bad night, very sick, and I didn't really feel well enough to drive over to Allihies. If I did leave for the funeral then I would need to leave the house by Noon at the latest, but the cats needed feeding and so I went out to the studio and after feeding them decided a seascape might be a nice oil to paint. As it turned out I painted the above landscape. I never know what I am going to paint, it always comes straight out of my head onto the canvas. I am really pleased with this one. I think I work better under a bit of pressure, that being to get it done so I had time to drive to Allihies. I got it done all finished in about 30 minutes and realised I wouldn't make the gathering before the burial, then I realised I wouldn't make the burial either. Being on chemo I am not supposed to to attend gatherings anyway. Just think, if I don't suvive then this oil might be worth a fortune!!
This one I am calling 'The Hidden Valley' and you can also see it on my website www.JohnEagleArt.com or you can purchase prints of it from right here on my Zenfolio site.
I am rather pleased with my effort. The oil is 20x16 inches, oil on canvas
