'South Island Light'



'South Island Light'
oil on canvas 
30 x 40

'I would like to wish you a Happy Solstice with a hope that at this time, as the rhythms of the natural world align themselves to the return of the light, that we all take some time to reflect.
Many at this time are anxious to find an answer to questions of why, how and who's fault. As it has been said many times in song and verse the answer lies within us all, not in a book or a law or a particular belief but inside our individual human souls. We all share the blame and we all have the answers. As we welcome the light think of the things you as a human being would wish to leave behind and what it is that you would welcome into our new year ahead.  We all have the human qualities to love and hate. We all have the right to seek and achieve happiness. These are some of the things that make us human. Please try to open your heart and mind to love, peace and happiness.'

A couple of quotes...

“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters
compared to what lives within us.”

'Alpine Morning'

'Alpine Morning' oil 24 x 30

Wishing you all peace, love & joy
this holiday season,
and all the best for 2013.
Sincerely,
Jeffrey
I would like to leave you with a poem from the
American poet Robert Frost
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

'The Rugged Coast'


Watching the incredible force of these Pacific
swells being thrown skyward by these
coastal ramparts is a thrilling
experience.
The knowledge that there are many animals
and birds that call this ecosystem home
makes you aware just how tenuous  
 our hold is to mother earth.
