Old Oak Carmarthen



Another day in the gallery today. It was a bit quiet other than David Elliot working upstairs replacing plasterboard above the stairwell. Still we did some trade.
Alex (she’s a saint or saintess, have to be politically correct) spent most of the afternoon at home with a couple of domestic issues mainly relating to my mother.

As we came home Venus was bright in the sky over Carmarthen and was being joined by Jupiter so a lovely cold bright night. No painting to report hopefully tomorrow. The painting is of the legendary Carmarthen Oak. A watercolour I did as a commission. The Oak used to stand at the corner of Priory Street and legend had it that when the Oak fell so would Carmarthen. Well the Oak has gone and Carmarthen  is still standing.
