Autumn… We’ve had beautiful colours in the trees this year, but it’s already November and we can feel the approach of Winter. Time to light the wood burning stove and hibernate, brush in hand.

It is summer in England! Really, it has been hot for 3 days. But I still find time to paint, although distracted by sunshine. This is my latest one, I showed it on facebook one evening, and had sold it by the following morning. It’s a painting of thirds, with a heavily textured foreground.
Thank you to those of you who came to Whitby Art Fair, and also to those who went to Horsforth Walk of Art last weekend, where someone who has been buying my work for the last 10 years exhibited his collection. I’m so lucky that such good people like my work. Here’s the first painting he bought, in 2006.
