'For me November brings a new cycle of inspiration and tends to be one of my most prolific months.  As I write there are already a couple of ‘Novembers’ waiting on the easel in various states of ‘undress’.'

It's funny that these words, written last November, apply to this one. I am still madly working on some larger studio works (not the same ones). But since the weather is behaving this week, I have managed to sneak out for plein air breaks. They still need some fine tuning so in the meantime, an earlier 'November'-and yes, they are the same trees out of my studio window that you have seen in previous posts.

November, Letting go
oil on canvas


  1. This is beautiful Jan, good to hear you are busy painting on some large canvases.

  2. Thanks Caroline-it's just they take so long...I'm getting panicked as i don't think I'll be ready for the big Feb show...
