Gather We, No More

A few people have been asking to see some of my recent painting. Apologies to those who caught this image already on my previous blog but here we go: my most recent painting completed four weeks ago.

So here we go, hot off the studio wall. This is oil on canvas83cmX52cm. The church commemorates the meeting point of the ancient Iclanders: the yearly 'Alping' gathering was the focul point of the communities' calender. The Apling was an annual festival where all social ceremonies and law speaking would take place. The painting is something of a lamentation for the loss of community and titles, 'Gather We, No More'.

Love it. Shades of Hopper...?

Yes, indeed. A great lamenter.
