Thursday 09th April 2020Moorhouse Farm - Work in Progress

I  am currently working on two paintings of the same building, Moorhouse Farm, near Allendale, Northumberland. The painting of the farm itself is closer to completion than the window painting. The window is to the right of the farmhouse.The detail of the farmhouse itself is taking some time - the scrubby grass at the front of the scene, and the tiny stream.
 
 
The whole place is so fragile that I suspect it won't stand another year. The tipping point isn't far away.

Friday 09th November 2018Ruined Cottage, Allendale

Just after changing my cover photo to ‘Ruined Cottage,’ I received this photo from friend Jennifer, who has recently seen the cottage as it is now, after coming across it on a walk. The cottage in Allendale is surrounded by mine shafts, and seems to be sinking and crumbling into the earth.
 
 
Thanks to Jennifer for sending me the photo.
