    I have just come back from this village (where I take the photographs, do the sketches and paintings) and am back in town overnight (where the internet works)

    beautifully done, Dennis!!!! I like the composition very much!!!!!

  • Thank you Lois :)
    Most of the cottages are a very long way from a well but this one is lucky:)
    I do lots of ‘straight’ sketches and acrylic paintings but I even turn some of these into impressionist on the computer :)

    Was this your family life? Nice painting and composition. The land where I live is part of the old family farm. My husband worked with his Grandfather and the farm was split up, then one year later his Dad died and we were given some land.

  • Not my family life at all :)
    Although my immediate ancestors were miners in Lancashire and Yorkshire my trade was electronics and I always lived the good life until I married a Romanian and bought an old falling apart peasant cottage in Romania.
    Restoring the house in the Romanian peasant village has really opened my eyes to the huge peasant community that still exists, the disintegrating houses and the way that the state has forgotten them (no roads, no running water, no sewage facilities, no drains, no rubbish collections) and just 15km from the main city of the county.
