Painting Salford ................. Nu 2

Perhaps it is the bright sunlight and the prospect of no more holidays till Christmas that have set Peter off on his Salford series.  

He has promisied me a shedload of paintings both and new and he has been as good as his word.

It began with a view of Salford Quays, and went on to some very fine paintings of Salford pubs.

And here is another dating from 2014.

I asked him if he had more planned to which he just said "give us a subject and I'll find you a painting."

It was a request that pleased two members of our local allotment society who after a cup of tea with Peter and a conversation about marrows were rewarded with a painting of their allotment shed.

So move over the Lowry, clean the windows at BBC North and just make sure that the water is clean  in the Quays in advance of his next set of paintings.
