Today’s piece is titled “Lost”. It is an oil on canvas and was using Bob Ross wet-on-wet technique.
I painted this whilst living in a beautiful part of Co. Roscommon called “Castlestange”. I loved it there because of the mystical feel of the place. The cottage was on the “Suck Valley Way”, right by an ancient early Iron age monument, La Tene stone with acres of woodland near by.
The reason I like this painting most, is the size of the figures compared to the trees – there’s the feeling of venturing into the unknown. My imagination wanders to ancient times when the flora and fauna were huge. Finally it reminds me of how humble human beings are- but a small part of everything. I hope you like.
Hope you are feeling good today, if not my thoughts are with you.
