London community garden
Oil on canvas
60 x 80cm

This painting is of a community garden that was made on a plot of land at the end of a street in kings cross, behind you can see the wall of a railway bridge and beyond that a road with a London bus and different styles of old and modern architecture. The local residents have put a lot of effort into the garden and whilst I was there some of them came and watched me paint and one man was very thrilled that I had even painted his tool shed! It was painted in December last year, the weather was quite mild. I was surprised to see two paraquets landing on the branches of the tree. Another memorable moment was when a homeless guy came and gave me a sandwich! He wanted to support my efforts!
