Title: Evening Sonnet
These are the kinds of paintings that I so enjoy doing. First I mix some naples yellow with molding paste (lots!) and lay it down on the canvas I use an old pencil and make lines and shapes and grooves. I let it dry and then I start blobbing paint on the painting and I keep dabbing all the colours in until I get the effect I want and lots of texture. This painting was of a memory when Jeff and I walked down our lane at Magundy and the sun was setting on the snow covered trees. It was breath-taking. There is a painter whose work I really admire - his name is David Langevin and he does this style of painting - his colours just glow.

“Wholly unprepared, we embark upon the second half of life… we take the step into the afternoon of life; worse still we take this step with the false assumption that our truths and ideals will serve as before.
