    a sky-light entrance-ment in the mousehole

    I never thought I’d do a post on here about my ‘day job’, but a process is unfolding whereby aspects of life which had previously seemed disparate are beginning to coalesce ~ like Rennaldburn, which gets its name from the stream and waterfall which runs through its meadows and wooded ravine.

    This, my home in a verdant valley by the White Esk in Southern Scotland, also happens to be a holiday let. I’ve always put a lot of love and creativity into ‘the holiday let side’; evolving sacred space is something which has long fascinated me.

    But the six-foot long painting I did last week is the biggest artwork I’ve made specially for its internal world: it’s to give the effect of a stained glass window for the roof pitch of the ‘Mousehole’ room.

    This is a bit like a soul-full version of Japanese pod hotel accommodation; a teeny-tiny space just big enough for a futon (you can’t stand up in it), which you go inside by crawling through a marble fireplace arch.

    Kids, particularly, fall in love with this diminutive den. So the painting itself is a celebration of youthful energies ~ Buddhas, angels, dragons, cloud castles, flying carpets and winged unicorns all cohabiting (but hopefully not codependent within :) the same space.

    Here's a time-lapse of it taking shape:
