Temple Of The Soul's Retreat

 "In the secret place of his temple he shall hide me." Psalm 27

As I entered into the hush of Autumn I began painting a new series TEMPLE...The first one I completed this Summer as part of the Eternal Series.  The Temple speaks so much to me, but especially of how it is a quiet place for the soul to retreat to.  These ethereal paintings are influenced by the garden temples of days past, like the one in Pride and Prejudice.  The color palette is calm in shades of white, grey, silver, gold, and pearl.  They are now available in my SEAWASHED SHOP.   A print is also available on archival french papier. 

"I saw Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence."
 ~Thomas Hood

The silence of this season, the hush, is like a temple that my soul retreats to.  Even now, as the rains  blow in, I step out into my garden under the canopy of grey clouds and find nourishing peace.  A temple of the soul's retreat.

Sunday light...

"God is their sun, whose radiant light
Creates eternal day."

A Grey Repose

"Each morning sees some task begun, each evening sees it close;  Something attempted, something done, has earned a night's repose."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

As the Autumn hush continues on
 the grey repose of night descends
and I find myself longing for more...

Fall's light surrounding
dancing in the corner.

Autumn Hush

Autumn...the hush before Winter. ~French Proverb
I am retreating into the hush of the season.
