Messing with Lowry. . .


Hello...sorry I've been a bit quiet this week.  A nasty little Tummy Bug captured me and held me hostage for a day and it has taken me all week to get over the unpleasant experience.

I wasn't really in the mood to use my brain (seeing as it was feeling fragile after the whole Bug thing) I decided to copy a masterpiece. Copy is putting it a little strongly as you can see.

Shall we say I was Lowry inspired. I really enjoyed walking into that painting.  The girl with the red bow was all dolled up and off to meet her boyfriend. The little boy was on his way home from school but first he was going to go into Mr Wibbley's grocery shop to buy some sweeties. (Blackjacks and Fruit salad - hehe who remembers those?).  One girl was off to her art class and the others had lost their little dog and were looking everywhere for him.  I do hope they find that dog...

That's my Fun and Nonsense....there's a storm raging here so I'm off to see everyone at Sunday Sketches... :)

  19. Forgive me for my late reply. I've been terribly swamped on this end. I hope you're feeling much better by now. Sending lots of love and hugs from this side of the world. I just adore this little painting and it makes me excited as I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing such a beautiful scene in 5 weeks when I step off a plane and in London for the first time in my life ever. xx
