‘A Quiet Backwater’ 

I discovered this scene of a thatched cottage in a place called Little Hazley which is situated in Oxfordshire, a virtually untouched part of our English landscape where time stands still. I changed the road from tarmac into a dirt path which I thought would be more fitting for this type of scene, beside  I don’t much like tamac in paintings! The painting was snapped up at an exhibition I had in Staffordshire.

This oil on canvas was commissioned by a client who has purchased and commissioned a number of paintings from me. Ed, a retired farmer, is keen on game fishing and most years travels to Scotland and fishes for Salmon.The scene in the painting is the River Gruinard which is on the West Coast, it is this stretch of river that is one of Ed’s favourite haunts.
