Lost in a Dark WoodAbout this work
This image reminded me of John Bunyan's 'Pilgrim's Progress', hence the title.
Recently I got lost in a strange wood with a dog. I thought the dog would lead me home. No chance! The dog was just as lost as I was.

She is so quiet and unassuming, but she rules the roost over two large dogs. Here she looks so compact and self contained.

Walking the dog in the fading light. A bit cold a bit spooky. Looking forward to getting in the warm.

Coming and GoingAbout this work
I adapted an image I saw in a newspaper. It made me think of people rushing to an fro in the underground, you can never be sure who is with whom, and what, if anything, is going on between them.

I spent a fruitful afternoon sketching and painting the surfers - wind, energy, daring and grace with a few near misses for unsuspecting swimmers.
I am not a Vase of FlowersAbout this work

The combination of colours and the difference between the sky and the grass is calming and satisfying.
