Castles


The painting of Llansteffan sold a couple of weeks ago. A popular spot and a popular view. It reminds me of when we were sat in an exhibition of my paintings and a youthful lad came in probably straight out of art college and said in a  loud disdainful voice to his companion, "Oh more castles!" ( In fact out of 70 paintings there were only five paintings of castles three of which sold).

 Everyone is entitled to their view although shouting it to the whole world can be a trifle immature.

Anyway Joseph Mallord Turner had no problem painting castles including Llansteffan so if it was good enough for him it is good enough for me.
