Small show!

Today Alice and I spent some time hanging most of my paintings on the walls at the Language School. I had more than I realized.
 It's great to be able to see them all together.
 Normally they are simply stacked against the wall or in boxes hidden from view.

The Bridge West

Park Bench

The sun was in and out all the time whilst painting this, and the bench was clearly one used by people waiting for the very regular bus, so folk didn't sit for long. 

I still enjoyed the lesson/ time though.

Spent quite a bit of the weekend exploring and painting cacti.

They are almost insect-like in their variety, hardiness and alien-esque appearance.


All these are A4 in size (29.7 X 21 cm) and oil on board.
