winter paintings

The pig has gone, we don’t like to ask where, we were told she had gone to the boar, but as she left on the evening before market day there are doubts…

I have been painting all winter, luckily it has been mild which is a real help when you live in a very chilly farm house. work can be a challenge here in cold weather, although the winter is the best time to work as the garden is a little less demanding. I have done a lot of oil paintings, starting with a tinted canvas which is a new approach, and using compositions with lots of figures, they feature Daisy the pig and apple picking, the fruit harvest was fantastic this last year, and a few washing line paintings, always a favourite subject. There should be about 25 new works including some watercolours for the coming exhibition opening on march 25th after the private view on Sunday the 24th.studio
