Tinsel Town

This painting has been sold

Oil pastel on paper 10" x 8"

I'm beginning to see that none of the buildings seem straight. I don't know if they really are out of line or whether it is a perception of mine.

Love those last few paintings Sheila. Like yourself,I think there is something about dusk lights and rainy seasons. All those sparkly reflections and fragmented colours maybe. Sometimes I do miss city life.
Really good work though.

Hi Sheila, this is very good.
I have tagged you. If you have already been tagged I understand. Please see my blog, I selected you because I have been inspired by your work. Some one as good as you has probably been tagged. Later, bd

Thanks Marjorie. Yes, I like being able to get to the city as well as the countryside. Best of both worlds in Stalybridge - near Manchester but also near the Peak District etc.

Hiya Bruce, thanks for the compliment of tagging me. That is kind of you - and a surprise! Yes I was once tagged before - but is this a continuation of that run or is it a new one? Anyway I will sure go look at your blog. I am always looking anyway. I love your unique style.

I think the perspective is great. Keeping the lines a bit tilted lends that feeling of history you have in England. Character as Rob says.

Hi Mary! Yeh, I think the people are a bit tilted too, at least in Stalybridge :-D
