It was so green down by the river by Leonora

It was so green down by the river

trying some more impressionism - this one's not from a photograph or of anywhere I know, just imagined a nice peaceful spot by the river.

thank you so much Katherine, I'm nothing special - just trying to make the best of what life deals out ! I would love your dream house ( I live in a quite nice town house ( but small )and would love to have that bit more space- bit more rural- and prob by the sea ! I am also at the mo researching my family tree and have found emmigrees to the US, and have contacted some distant cousins there - you never know, we might be related !

We could be, my great grandfather John Patrick Hurley came from County Cork Ireland, but they say my maiden name Marr is Scottish, and I am also of native American aancestry on my mothers side. My husband is a McIntosh and apparently that is because his great grandfather who was Italian was adopted by an irish family...You are special, we all are don't ever forget that, we are all here for a reason, and it's a special one:)

Your imagination is fabulous, the painting is so georgeous, i feel so serene gazing into this painting, just beautiful..love the greens, this is a healing painting, the colors you have used are what i see when iam doing my healing work with my lovely clients. This is perfection....and then just to say how beautiful it is, with the lovely waters, the sun dancing upon the rippling current, te georgeous sunkissed trees, and the exquisitely detailed walk down to the waters...i could dream about this painting for a long time...well done! I love it...the sky is the perfect dreamy shade of blue with the little clouds just lazily floating by.

Brenda, you're amazing, as a friend of mine said " you have special eyes to see " ! I am actually recovering and still fighting a life-threatning illness and I have started painting to try and heal my spirit and calm my hands. thankyou so much for your lovely and insightful words, warmest wishes Leonora

Leonara, my heart goes out to you...i know how difficult it is to believe and to know you will be just fine...but i feel that you are healing, and your painting is full of the energy for healing...if you can...just gaze at your beautiful painting, see the colors move thru your body..your cells...and the cells become perfect, healed..and rejuvinated...if you can..perhaps play some beautiful music that talks to your soul if you will...and relax into the moment...this will help restore peace, and healing to your soul..and YOUR body as well. This will help to center you and create a peace from withing...my love to you always!!! Big Hugs...Brenda....

Artist Statement
for Leonora
LeonoraI grew up on the west coast of Scotland and I now live in Cambridgeshire, England, I have a long time love of art which has never been realised. Life, raising a family, and a lot of hard work in a demanding career got in the way, no regrets about that though, my 4 children are beautiful and the highlight of my life always ! But since becoming seriously ill last year my life has changed dramatically. Painting is now a great joy and a great challenge ! - the talent and the wonderful artists and friends on this site have given me so much , thank you ! I apologise to all my friends if I don't always get back to you quickly on comments or emails as my health is up and down these days.
Am away for a couple of weeks in Aug, catch up with you...
