I have revisited this painting. I was quite pleased with it but had the nagging feeling that it was asking for something to appear in the space between the trees. It seemed as if the space was wreathed in mist so I added a ghostly and unreal apparition. Not too sure if it worked.What do you think!

Why is it I am always painting paths, tracks, roads or things that lead to some undefined place. I will leave you to draw your own conclusions! Whatever the reason I so enjoyed painting ' The Path in Autumn ' ( now sold ) I decided to paint this painting ' The Path in Spring ' The size is 40cm x 30cm and is framed and mounted. The frame size is 54cm x 44cm. If you are interested in buying this painting contact me through my web site www.chrisgauntartist.co.uk to make an offer before it is officially uploaded to the above site.

I was dipping into ' The Power of Now ' by Eckhart Tolle the other night, many years after first reading it. I don't know if it is my age or just that I am looking at it from a Buddhist perspective but I found myself becoming a bit irritated. There is something about these new age gurus that increasingly strikes me as somewhat smug. So many of them are just regurgitating and repackaging old wisdom. Perhaps it has always been thus? If it gets each new audience to look at these things then it does indeed have a purpose. I was talking to a man who had just joined our meditation group. He was an expert in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and he had just realised how much CBT owes to the Buddhist understanding of the human mind!
