i finished work yesterday (at last) and now
have a few days to catch up. the first thing
was to get my push bike out and go for a ride.

new years day and nobody around, i road 10 miles
to my brothers and only a few cars passed me.
a couple of girls on horses smiled at me, there is
something ethereal about girls on horses, something
pre-raphaelite.. they always seem friendly and smile.

the weather was still, quite warm (for january) and
little streaks of crimson shot through at the base
with a band of mist connecting to the bare flat fields.

plenty ideas forming for some paintings.

i have the images in my mind with that mist enveloping.


  1. so amazing steven. i have pictures of skanky Miami on my camera and you have this. the holiday's are killing me not creating is killing me my family is killing me!

  2. Beautiful Post. Sounds so lovely.
    Thank you again for your comment on my blog today. I am honored that you look forward to my posts on Friday.

    I look forward to your posts too.

    I am happy to report I did work today, and it wasn't all that bad. It was a struggle at first, but I stuck with it, and set the groundwork for six small paintings!
    I am listening to Blonde Redhead- 23, Film School-Hideout, and of course Interpol (I like to put their song "Untitled" from Turn on the Bright Lights on repeat)

    All the best- Until next time.
