Harlech



It’s been a bit of a mixed day really. Walked the dog twice, been to the gallery and have done a painting of sheep in the snow in the Preseli’s, been shopping in town, finished an acrylic painting at home and have been down the gym. I am now going to re-hang a door, something that I have been putting off a while.


While I am on the subject of doors. One of my pet hates is people who ignore you when you hold a door for them or let them through first. Strangely I find it tends to be the middle aged and elder members of our society who completely ignore you as they waltz by you as if you were a commissionaire. Only yesterday four ladies walked through a door in procession while Alex stood holding it like a lemon with not an acknowledgement from any of them. Here is an appropriate quote.


Good manners will open doors that the best education cannot. Clarence Thomas.


The sketch above is of Harlech Castle. I did it earlier in the year when we were stopping on a campsite there. Unfortunately the town seemed to be suffering with shops closing and it looked pretty neglected. On the other hand the beach was terrific.


Have to rush now a door is waiting!
