Elaine, I'm very interested in the concept of Home. Were you , in fact, homesick when you painted this? It looks very tranquil but also a bit closed in. Does it relate to the land or to feeling - or both?

Ann, I painted this in Ireland. I was thinking about being homesick when I had travelled abroad and how much I used to miss the colours of the early morning Irish landscape. It relates to my emotional attachments to home and its landscape.
