This is one of the gems of the North West and an allegory on hope
It’s an image every artist is inspired by.
It’s early spring – a time of hope and expectation. Bright sunlight illuminates our distant aims and aspirations. Deep shadows and sculptural trees seem to block the way; the jigsaw puzzle of stuff frames the sweep of the river and leads our eye to the majestic sweep of the mountains.
In the foreground the golden daffoldils “they flash upon the inward eye” and light up our lives with exuberant colour.
Beauty is all around us. We carry it with us all the time. Enjoy!
