Burgess Jewellers Carmarthen


The above painting was a commission for a present to Peter and Bethan Burgess from the staff in the shop. There has been a Burgess Jewellers in Carmarthen for over a hundred years but they are now closing down which is a shame. I somehow lost my photo of the painting but thanks to Clive for sending me the one above. I chose to do a night scene for something different and wanted to emphasise the warm colours coming from the shop with strong contrasts.

Yesterday I made a few minor changes to two paintings, one that has been bugging me for a while and although it was framed I couldn't resist taking it all apart to make the change. The other one hadn't been framed but was sat against the studio wall waiting for its final blessing before framing.
