The Vagaries of the English Weather

February’s weather can be unpredictable and today was no exception.  When its windy as well, the weather can change in a matter of minutes. Today ………..after waking to an unexpected frost, it was blues skies all round.  By lunchtime though, the clouds started rolling in, darker and darker, the wind howling in the chimney with spits of rain all afternoon.  To get any atmospheric photos this time of the year, you have got to be on your toes.  No good thinking “I’ll go this afternoon”. At least the rain meant I could get on with laying down some ink and acrylic washes on a new commission I have started.  Wonder what tomorrows weather will bring?


Over the coming months, I hope to post my views on life as an artist. I live, work and breathe art by the sea.  The sea is my constant inspiration and I will put up works in progress and my thoughts and philosophy living in this stunning environment. So to transport yourself to this part of my world come back and see me soon.
