#11 of 86


And here's another. My friend gave me a beautiful painting of this scene and it's one of my most treasured posessions, so I thought I'd have a go at painting it. Doesn't even come remotely close to doing his painting justice, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Please note that I did a quick "indoors snap" of this, so the colours are a little lost in the translation to a digital image. I'll try and redo it when I get time.

Our Own Art-Club!

Each Friday we go to the local Art-Club in Horwich. It's a thriving club with a broad range of people of all ages and skill-levels. Apart from the regular painting sessions, we have many professional artists visiting us to demonstrate their skills and to run workshops.

But sometimes, it's nice when just a few friends get together mid-week too, and so here we are in Simon's "studio", benefitting from the skill and experience of his father, Brian Waddington. It looks a bit cramped in there, but we were just huddled together to fit in the photo frame :-)

And you can drink beer in this club! :-)
