Welsh Fields I (Rhuddlan Castle)

The castle is old and crumbling yet it still retains its majesty. Industrial complexes and cold hard buildings, cheap, thrown up in the 70s, encroach on the fields and streams. Sheep graze next to a trailer rental warehouse. The gentle gray light across the fields captures me, moves me, strikes me right in the heart. It softly glows, making the shadows purple and the greens of the fields and hedges rich and warm.

These are the things that I love about the UK – the light, the colours, even the fluffs of sheep.

There is so much that I want to say in this painting. Something about it feels special, ancient, sacred.

Thousands of years of people moving, living, breathing.

Standing and looking at this same scene.

It’s like time has paused, here on this hillside. I stand for a moment in that timeless time; clockless time, bigger and greater than human life and yet encompassing us all.
