A Rocky Road

I seem to have had a bit of a painters block recently. I am not entirely sure why, it is possible Morocco totally blew me away, or I have walked too much, or my feet are still too sore, or maybe I am just generally drained. I equally might just need a bit of a break, as I do seem to every now and again.

I have been feeling like I need to try and do something though, so I made some effort this week, in anticipation of a quiet working week, to clear my diary. It seems to be working. All my work is out at the moment, waiting for client feedback. I have planned no social events until Thursday, cancelled all my meetings and just left in exercise and/or the odd walk which always helps to clear my head.

It appears to have worked, and yesterday evening, I finally felt like getting the paints out and pulling something together. I am still not brave enough to tackle the Atlas Mountains, so I went for painting my recent (ish) trip to Snowdonia instead. So, please welcome below, a view of Snowdonia National Park from the Llanberis Path up to Mount Snowdon. I think it has come out quite well, or at least reminds me of how it felt to be up there, watching the clouds roll in around us.

The interesting thing now is, that I have another image on my mind. It is debatable whether I have the energy to pull that out now, or whether I will save it for tomorrow or possibly the weekend. It feels nice to have finally woken up a bit!
