1933 Early Morning Frost SOLD!


11" x 14" / 28 x 35.5 oil on panel

Just finished, another wintry landscape, along the same country road as the last painting, just a bit further along. Both buildings are abandoned and forlorn but are still picturesque on this cold and frosty morning. To the left, what looks like a dead tree is actually a telephone pole adorned with the remnants of  dead ivy entwined around it. Ivy is everywhere here and finds many trees to encircle and grow up into.

1932 Who Lived Here? SOLD


11" x 14" / 28 x 35.5 cm oil on panel

There is a very pleasant walk not far from me, a narrow country lane almost a track in places, a few farmers and other people live along there but also at least 5 uninhabited houses and cottages that are slowly sliding into decay and this is one of them. I wonder who had lived here and why they left and let their property fall into a ruin. The interesting thing about this cottage is that it is semi-detached and the other half of the house is lived in and well cared for.
