There is an undeniable cosiness about to envelop us as we turn away from the sun, but the long evenings are a challenge at the best of times. It sometimes feels like we are going deeper into a dark wood with the glow of summer fading behind us. Slowly we will make our way along an overgrown path towards the light of a new year.
And yet today this walk through the forest is beautiful. The November sun creates perfect shadows, filtering through the branches, spotlighting small details on leaves and grasses. Mysteriously these months, while a challenge to the soul, are ideal for photography.
The seasonal feast which is the Irish Christmas will break up the winter nicely and here in the studio the elves are working overtime already! This year I have a number of special gift options in the shop and to avail of these on time for the holiday you need to order in November.
Yes folks, the Foxglove Lane Shop is now open and the dark evenings are a perfect time to browse!
Do you have strategies to bring light and energy into your life and work? I write about finding inspiration in my first little picture book “Seek light, embrace shade and live colour” A perfect gift to introduce some one to Ireland and to following the creative path. You can buy the hardback book here for 30 euros or download the book for 3.99
