Still Lives

September 24, 2019 15:05

Following an operation last February I was unable to move around much for a couple of months. As a result I set up a series of still lives on my desk at home. A number of them are currently being exhibited at the Biscuit Factory Gallery in Newcastle until November 2019. I enjoyed painting them very much and will make painting still life a regular winter activity from now on.
