Country Cottage Painting Commission

Here’s a stage by stage painting sequence of a recent painting commission which became more enjoyable the more I worked on it. It’s a painting of an out-building beside a holiday cottage in the North of England where we stayed with some of our extended family for a week last year, so it brings back good memories of the happy time we spent together. One wonders if our political ‘leaders’ will ever have the humility to step back from the unnecessary carnage they’ve inflicted on us over this past year and give us their ‘permission’ to enjoy such innocent and normal pleasures again. So, all the more treasured a memory this is.
