|"Blueberry fields near winter" by Hilary J. England|
8" x 10" oil on canvas, 2015
Here is a little landscape I did of a blueberry field, all red now with the approaching Winter, at the base of the Blue Mountains. I go back to a lot of the same places, because I love them, and this spot is one of them...close to where I used to live. Nice memories there I suppose. It's like having a warm bowl of chicken soup...comfort food. Deep inside, I guess I am a rank sentimentalist and romantic, but that's OK. It makes life a more beautiful experience in the face of a broken, fallen world.
I have others I need photograph, but I have had a Mr. Magoo moment, and can't find the charger for my big camera, and the battery in the Canon is dead. So, after ripping apart my studio, and every other place I can think of, I tried to recall places I might have absent-mindedly stuck that darn battery charger, and I keep coming up blank. For all I know, I threw it away with my decimated suitcase when I came back from India....it is possible. So, now I will need to order a new one, and that will take at least a week, so I am a stick in the mud for right now: going nowhere fast haha. I do have a little pocket camera which is decent, but it is too frustrating trying to see the image on that tiny screen, so I'll just wait. Patience has never been my strong virtue, but I'll manage!
