              Snowlocked   Oil study on canvas board   10 x 12 inches   

Not many at the bus stop.  Dore, near Sheffield has a thick covering of snow.

(Painted from a friend's photograph).

Studio Musings...

I painted this about 2 years ago, put it aside and found it this week in a cupboard behind my painting equipment. It never got finished as other work became more pressing.  Now, I don't want to 'finish' it as there is a sense of the occasion in the simplicity. 
 Sometimes less is more.

It is easy to overwork a piece leading to disaster.
  A painter's challenge is putting it aside and leaving it alone.
