My studio space in the basement of an Art Gallery. Today it is wet and rainy, a good day to paint. 
I have a class coming in this morning but would rather be painting! :) Oh well, this afternoon is open and i have several on the go which need to be finished. A couple of upcoming shows to get ready for and new ideas percolating. There just is not enough time in the day! Ahhh, the life of a painter. I thought years ago it would be glamorous, with openings and gala events, whiling away the hours in coffee shops and wine bars with fellow artists, requests for appearances and free flights to resorts. Such a fantasy dashed by long hours alone in a basement. I love it! Would not have it any other way. 
Hope your day is going well and there are many new colours appearing in your life. Happy painting, all!

"Young Street"

In a previous show i had a painting like this with kids building a snowman. 
A lady liked it but was too late as it had sold already. 
She asked me to do one similar for her. This is it! 
Watercolour on Arches C/P paper, 11" X 18".
