As the clocks go back

As the clocks go back

I love the clocks going back.  The change in the length of the day marks the quieting of the land in the run-up to the shortest night. Some of my most intense memories of childhood are of my wonder at the changing of the seasons and the shifts from light to darkness, darkness to light.

In the last week, I have started cooking traditional hearty stews and soups.  Today I will be lighting the candles in the window bay at 4.30:  the wood burner will be lit and the house will fill with the scents of cooking, oak and apple crumble.

Foss Fine Art is delighted to present this new collection of paintings by Catherine Hyde. The established artist is well known for her richly worked and atmospheric paintings and she has been described as ‘a visual poet weaving images, symbols and archetypes into paintings that resonate in the subconscious and linger there like half-remembered dreams’.

The theme of her new collection focuses on imagery drawn from the rivers and marshlands of Cornwall and from ‘The Song of Wandering Aengus’ by W. B. Yeats. These dreamlike paintings are quiet, suggesting stories: tree-lined river valleys filled with glimpses of hares, stags and owls and snow filled skies that thrill with the murmurations of starlings.
