Various pears
Oil On Canvas

I have recently been introduced to a web site called shiftinglight. It is paintings by a British artist, Julian Merrow-Smith who lives in Provence. He who paints one postcard size painting a day then puts them up for auction on his own website each night. They are all little gems and I have been inspired to try the discipline of trying to paint a little something every day myself. So far I have fallen very short of one a day .

Mills Street 2

This is my current work in progress. It is another house around the corner, this time with a small tree standing guard out the front. It is taking forever it seems as I get caught up in the tiny detail.
