Art Circus Spotlight
Northern Lights by Lucy Atherton


‘For a while I have been a bit obsessed with painting snowy landscapes, but I’ve never really been sure why. I am drawn to the cosiness of log cabins, deep dark lakes, mountains and fir trees. I find snow beautiful, and of course the northern lights are like magic. I painted this painting at the start of 2012, prior to a forthcoming trip to Finland, from my imagination.To be honest, I’ve never been sure if I finished this painting, but I quite like the way it feels quite fresh and not over worked. It hangs in my front room.’
