CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL ARTISTS SELECTED FOR THE BEVERLEY OPEN ART EXHIBITION.
What is 17a you ask? Well it is the nomenclature for our
recently acquired …. allotment (for my
friends abroad, a rentable portion of land to be used for growing vegetables
The view shows a partially hidden Beverley
Minster as winter is approaching. Though some greenery exists here
and there, the effects of autumn can be seen as trees are losing their leaves
others just retaining their colour. The forecast is for a drop in temperature
next week heralding the arrival of frosts and possibly snow. The picture
illustrates the proximity of the Minster to the allotment site and it will be a
pleasure to work the land with such a view. You may just make out some squashes
and sprouts though little else as most of the crops have been harvested.The plein air painting took three visits to
complete. Hope you enjoy the picture.
