little scene

oil on canvas 6x8"

the boys wanted to go skate boarding,
couldn't leave them on their own,
so choose this little scene nearby,
purely for the lovely afternoon light.

And the light is what you've captured. Lovely little exercise. I tried to post a comment on your last piece but it doesn't seem to have appeared. Hope this arrives.

Where is your next exhibition please and will you be showing this piece of work?

rob ijbema said...

hi jen,
i'm afraid i'am not doing any gallerys at the moment,
although Llandrindod Wells tourist centre will have some of my works on display...
it is all internet nowadays,
but you are always welcome to visit me,to see the works in real life,if you are in the area...
