"Finished off all requisitions from Brechan / Cares (?). No coals arrived." I assume the first is to do with work and I'm afraid I can't even be sure of the word after the oblique. I can imagine the non-delivery of coal was worrying.
Welcome to my blog. I'm a professional artist whose work is mainly derived from the study of towns and cities. Light and shadow on buildings is a major fascination while colour and I wrestle regularly. I work mainly in oil paint, but am trying to revive my drawing practice. I'm still very much a figurative painter aiming at some kind of modern representation. I believe in the continuing value of painting and follow in its long and honourable tradition.
