Hidden Bays, Morag Lloyds, Greengallery

“During lockdown I went back to my roots and painted what I missed most from my 30 years of sailing and exploring the western Isles with my family. I found that people connected to this work. I imagine that they missed the peaceful far away places too, somewhere to be still and a place to appreciate the healing rhythms of nature. I am grateful for having that space and the time to develop my work and to be able to take my time to reflect on what I really love.
I am working from old sketchbooks and memories of places, using Acrylic and pencils and mostly working using a palette knife which is fairly new to me but helps me keep my work loose and helps to create more of an atmosphere . I aim to get a feeling of timelessness and the history of the places I paint. A nod of recognition of the souls that have lived and worked hard carving out a living in these remote places. My grandfather who was from the islands used to say you cannot live on a view alone. I think his family had a difficult life.These days we are all buzzing about in our lives and we need to take time out to connect with nature.. It seems each generation has its downside..”
