Rainy January!

We have had a great deal of rain here in Britain for the last few weeks, but the temperatures have been mild. We have been for some very muddy walks, but the scenery is still spectacular.top of Forge Road2014-01-11 14.01.24

Not much painting going on as we have been looking for a car (bought one yesterday) and we are looking to buy a new kitchen, both of which are very time-consuming.

Christmas in Tintern

I have produced very little artwork since my move to Wales in October this year, but plan to get going again in 2014.

A carol service at Tintern Abbey was a beautiful experience, and one that I felt moved to paint.

We had a wonderful Christmas in the beautiful Wye Valley, and our turkey fryer from America was put to use on Christmas day.
