"Snow still lying. (3 wks 2 days). Got some coal & coke today." As an aside, I note the little epigram at the foot of the diary page: "Those who govern best make the least noise." What a noisy government we have at the moment.
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.
