Happy Christmas



                      A HAPPY CHRISTMAS & ALL BEST WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR


    Whether you are spending Christmas stomping round some mountain-top in search of picturesque holes in the ice to paint, or relaxing with your family, have a great time. For my part I can't stay cooped up for long over the holiday, and have to get out - taking the old sketchbook is, of course de rigueur, but these days I more often encounter mudscapes rather than pristine snow!

    2017 has been a good year for me with so many things happening, and I hope it's been kind to you. I know some of you will be alone this Christmas, and maybe you will gain comfort from indulging yourselves in your painting. Art is a wonderful and much underrated pastime, hobby, way of life, however you see it, and it has a powerful way of transporting us away from the ills of reality and into new worlds.

    Enjoy the season, take care and I will be back in the new year
