    The Brecon Beacons painting is utterly stunning, Janet. As I scrolled down to see the full picture, I found my heart and soul lifting with joy, if that makes sense. Hugs for a magical hummingbird week! 😀

    Janet I love those shades of blue. And these hummingbirds are particularly lovely.
    (I nearly missed this post, because my “Reader” gets so overloaded. I’m going to try and get set up to get your posts via email.) Hummingbird hugs! 🙂

    The quote resonated beautifully with me and your painting of the Brecon Beacons reminds me that, in some miraculous way, you always seem to start with the essence of a person or place, which makes the physicality of the painting truly remarkable in my opinion.

      Thank you. Your comments are always much appreciated. I don’t consider myself to be a landscape painter, but living in the beautiful Brecon Beacon National Park for twelve years, was to say the least, inspiring. Janet

    You are wonderfully talented. I love your Brecon Beacons. Beautifully bright and vibrant. It reminds me of the moor that we used to live on in Yorkshire. Same colours and tones, same energy. Perfect.
