The Shadow Mountain

The Shadow Mountain - oil/panel -7"x5" - sold

In the winter night
By the lake edge
A stern breeze makes
The young novices
Of reed bend
Low and bow
To the mystery
Of a shadow-mountain,
Gathered the moment,
The cloud freed the moon.

- John O' Donohue
From a poem entitled 'Decorum'

It never ceases to astonish me how I find titles for my work time and time again. There can be a great sense of a 'connectivity' when I stumble across the written word which seems to encapsulate the piece I have just created. I never put this down to chance but prefer to grab the opportunity to place the two arts together side by side in a complementary fashion.

- Richard
