Hidden ValleyHidden ValleyReturning home to my house in the hidden valley on the Beara peninsulla

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

Survive, John. You are worth so much to so many. Your painting is so enthralling on so many different levels and speaks volumes of your worth. You don't know me as i come from a long, long way away, but i connected through my brother, Joe Jewell, sister-in-law Carla Neggers, and John Moriarty. i have followed you for several years and just wish we could sit down on a hillside looking over a hidden valley and just talk for a long, long time. Thanks. My thoughts and prayers are with you. jim jewell
