Stalybridge Days

This painting has been sold



Oil on hardboard 12" x 32".

This was a commissioned painting for a buyer in Texas. It was interesting to do. I think it's the biggest Stalybridge painting in oils that I have done so far and I really enjoyed it. Not easy to see on the blog though owing to its long, narrow shape. Clicking on it gives you a better view.

Cheers Rob, that's a nice compliment. No, I'm not working on anything bigger at the mo. This one was a commission or I wouldn't have done even this. It posed new challenges though and I wouldn't mind facing up to them again, so who knows.

Amazing....and that sense of 'mystery' is still here, too. Love the figure w/ the bike & the dog!
