A special acrylic & thread painting - the landscape spilling out in abstract embroidered marks over the white watercolor paper. 


The piece portrays some of the beautiful Cairngorms area in Scotland, with its heather-covered hills and glistening rivers and warmly colored grasses. Geese were heading south and it reminded me of this Mary Oliver poem:


Wild Geese


You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Meanwhile the world goes on.


Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain

are moving across the landscapes,

over the prairies and the deep trees,

the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things.


The piece is varnished and measures 21x29,7cm (A4), it comes without the frame.

Your place in the family of things
