The empty notice board

Stamford park in snow. This notice board really stood out with its empty ochre boards and its indian red painted supports. I never noticed it when the park was green and leafy and hit by dappled sunshine yet I suppose it has been there a long time.

This is such a great painting, so light and loose -- saying it all in near abstraction.

Take care,

Barbara

Yes, that notice board was crying out for a bit more abstraction than I gave it, Barbara.

I really like this one! The bushes behind the notice board repeat that same shape-it's a strong painting.

Hi Leslie - it was my second attempt to paint this. I didn't notice about the repetition of shapes there till you mentioned it. Just shows how far a lot of our work becomes intuitive doesn't it. That fact both heartens me and alarms me!

Hi Sheila.
I love all your Snow and atmospheric paintings. I always look at your real Art at real prices blog, but in future I shale look at your Stalybridge paintings blog. To me, that is where the real Art is. ( The ones that I prefer that is). Congratulations on your acceptance to the upcoming exhibition, and all the best.
Vic.

Hi Vic, thanks for your kind comments. I am enjoying the Real Art blog paintings though too much at the moment to forego them. I feel as if I am liberating myself to develop in new and more interesting ways.
