I have a tendency to paint from one composition. Single object in the middle. This is no different really, but the fact the pansies were in a not good looking pot forced me to slightly change the crop. Now it’s a low down in the middle composition.

I found online the work of Barry Stedman last year who produces lovely work. Pots with abstract decorations and built of imperfections. I love it. I got this one as a gift. Perfect for daffodils.
I have heard of conflicting reports of this years apple trees being either barren or loaded with fruit. Happy to say ours and Father-in Law’s are in full laden glory. Here is a branch of Robert’s tree. A red red variety.

It is different in that it is urban, so whether it fits the series , time will tell, when more views are painted. It is certainly a view from a train, so it probably will be included in the same group.
