It'll soon be bonfire night in this little village where I live and work. I've often thought about painting bonfire night, complete with fireworks, but it only occurs to me around this time - I'll need to get my act together earlier next year! Meanwhile, here's a picture of this wonderful, primitive fire ceremony to brighten a sometimes depressing time of year.
This year, though, the weather has been bright and calm and sunny so far. It can't last, but it helps to shorten the winter.
We'll be blogging from time to time about Alan's work, what he's working on and what's for sale. Watch this space for news of forthcoming exhibitions too!
