As in Stripes (See I love colour...blog 31.01.12) and The Stream (See a life together blog 20.02.12) I used bands of colour, not parallel this time but wavering like ribbons to represent the undulating landscape. The dark edges of these bands depict the trees and hedges, often gnarled and windblown, that frame the land as they are rooted in it.

After our ride on the roundabout the rosy glow began to leave the sky. We set off to retrace our steps and make our way home, however as the sky was changing and the day drawing to an end the sections of the walk took on a more sombre age-old quality. We didn't feel like we were going over old ground, we were seeing and sensing it anew. I have conveyed this by changing the sky around the outside of the painting. We can never go back to a place and find it to be exactly the same, we can't recreate the past, we can't hold on to the present: we move through time in one direction.
Homeward bound on our last walk of the holiday we found the moon in a puddle.
