'Samhain Afternoon'

'Samhain Afternoon'
oil on wood panel
6 x 8

Since the ancients walked the earth 
we celebrate this time 
halfway between the summer and winter solstice...

"May the energies be reversed:
From darkness, light!
From bane, good!
From death, birth!
(an excerpt from an ancient Samhain chant)

This piece was painted on the ancient shores
of Thetis Cove during the afternoon of
Samhain several weeks ago now.
Your thoughts & comments are always valued!

'Towhee Territory'

Last of the November colour
A sunny spot out of the cold breeze
Talking with all the Towhees
They pop out of the cover
Seeking that funny accent
That keeps answering their calls

But its just a bird lover
