We went to the Pentlands at the weekend. Scott and his brother set up a fire. It was a beautiful fire. I realised that I have not been sitting in front of the fire for years. I nearly forgot how magical experience it is. I nearly forgot that feeling not only of warming up yourself but mostly of being connected and supported by fire, by nature. When I was sitting in front of the fire I felt so peaceful and safe. I felt protected by the fire. It was like a gift which earth offered to me or shared with me to nourish my soul and fill with inspiration. I nearly forgot about four sacred elements. Fire, water, air and earth. How much our life depends on these forces? How precious and magical they are. Thank you four elements. I called my latest painting 'Summer'. I wanted her to be full of light, delicacy, heart and understanding. I hope you can see it in her. Have a beautiful week.
