Three of the four paintings that I submitted to the Wymondham Arts Centre spring show were hung so I was quite pleased. Unfortunately none were sold.
A member of my family has remarked that I have not posted anything for quite some time (I didn’t know they cared) so I thought I had better remedy the matter.

This is the first in a projected series of pure abstracts based on the major battles of the English Civil War.
In the early afternoon, Charles sent his army down the hill to meet the Parliamentary army commanded by Essex. On the royalist right was Prince Rupert who broke Essex's left flank. In the centre, reinforcements arrived and they managed to push forward putting the lives of the King's sons, Charles and James, in danger. The battle was a stalemate with neither side able to advance.
