Mini market

This painting has been sold



Oil on hardboard 8" x 8"

I have painted this shop before. I was really interested in the angles of the buildings and the two street lamps and that shop window to the upper left above the mini-market with its yellow hoarding.

Hi Sheila,

I've been on vacation for a couple of weeks and unable to get to your blog. This is lovely, and so are all the paintings you've been doing since I had a chance to look at your work.

Take care,

Barbara

Viewing your painting this morning helped me to solve a problem with one that I'm doing of the Royal Oak pub near Chichester Harbour.
Thanks.

I love the street lamps on the buildings, they really make the painting (I also like how subtle the second one is).

Diane, I think it is perhaps just a matter of "choosing" to paint different subjects. I like the variety and the opportunities it gives me to develop as a painter. I always hope some kind of 'inner self' is coming through in all of them but I'm not so sure!

I love the light in this painting - makes me think of a Summer day full of promise...just like the Summers when we were little.

Hiya Lou, ah yes, Stalybridge has a habit of making us feel nostalgic. Remember the cinema and the French films? Sadly, no more. It's a flippin night club now. This one is that little corner shop just past the bus station and the Cosmo Bingo on the left. Wish you were here (the foods good, the people are nice, etc. etc.) Love, mum.
