Holme on the Wolds, East Yorkshire.

12 x 10 inch, oil on canvas.
Driving around the South Dalton you come to this junction at Holme on the Wolds,

( ... always makes me feel like singing
 " Home, home on the range,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day....)

anyway it is a small farming hamlet. It has rained so much recently I have wondered about building an ark, and indeed I managed only to sketch this onto the canvas before it rained again. So I had to finish it at home. It will be so good to get some dry weather. I hastily moved over to the Pipe and Glass, at South Dalton for a bowl of soup.
