Bill’s Shed

Bill is a good friend - a local ornamental blacksmith who still dabbles in his forge. He built this shed as a retreat in his long riverside garden. He lives without TV, Computers and mobile phones, but his life is as complete as anyone ealse I know (More so? That’s a good debate). Got a painting of him in the studio in the ‘people’ section.

Swimming pool at Ondara

Fran and David’s swimming pool ooutside Ondara in Spain. Don’t know if it still exsist like this - the local bigwigs decided to add a slip road to the Motorwy running past the property, and knocked off a large corner of the plot. The biggest victims were the terrapins that had their own enclosure next to the road.

Cleeve Abbey is situated in Washford, 6 miles East of Minehead. The monastry was one of those partially destroyed by Henry VIII, but parts of it are still in good condition, including the main hall and the Bishop’s quarters. It also has a fabulous tiled pavement laid down in 1270 and which is the only large-scale example of a decorated monastic refectory floor in Britain The most picturesque part of the Abbey, though, is the gatehouse. I took an easel down there, and spent a couple of hours laying out the basics of painting, took a couple of photos, and finished it off in the studio.
