We've had some glorious weather over the last few days. I was able to grease the pedal crank bottom bearings on my bike and venture out into the woods for the first time in mild sunny weather. I spent the day yesterday at one of my favourite haunts "Forty Hall". It really recharged the art batteries and has given me fresh impetus to get cracking on this years paintings. Here are a couple of paintings that I have painted in the last day or two. I can't wait to get out there again and sit and listen to the birds and the babbling brooks.
