Edge of Town

Edge of Town (Oil on canvas, 100 x 80 cms )

I got to the tinkering stage yesterday, so I've stopped. It was either Degas or Leonardo who said,

Art is never finished, only abandoned.

Whoever it was, he knew whereof he spoke. I could go on adjusting this picture for ages and would almost certainly ruin it, so I was glad to load it into Mo's motor today and wave goodbye to it. She'll be taking it and the rest of the pictures to Bishop Auckland tomorrow and I'll follow along in the Canon's car. Then the fun will begin again, as we try to arrange umpteen disparate pictures in the McGuinness Gallery.

Yes, I love the colours especially the rusty reds, with that blue!

Another show, congrats!

Good luck with the hanging - this one will glow wherever you put it.

Ian, marja-leena, anna - thanks. I'm beginning to think I might be getting to grips with colour after all!

Yes, marja-leena, another show, but next year is looking very bare.
