Looks Like Someone Wrestling a Horse...
Sometimes a remark made by someone when you are in the middle of a painting can have a serious impact on the way you look at your work, and on occasion can be quite detrimental as it echoes round in your head as you paint. However, I think the above sums up what this painting looks like while it is in it's blocking stage.
This is a private commission in acrylics. It has made a good start but I may have to cover it while it is not being worked on, just in case any further remarks affect my thinking!
Currently knitting some knobbly dogs....
...and a church door.
This is the reverse side of our new garden fence. See all that earth that has fallen? That's because there is a huge gap between the bottom of the fence and the ground - the erosion on our side is about 10 inches in some places, exposing shrub roots and making it impossible to plant anything else. This was done at Easter and I am still awaiting it to be shored up despite numerous broken promises by builders and housing association. Maybe today?
