Bringing Home the Catch

This little painting in 3 dimensions was sold today at my show- Layers Leaves Petals Paper, in Cardigan.
Inspired by by the views through the windows of cottages in the fishing village of Staithes  and up narrow alleys this series of works all have the common idea of a view, partly hidden or glimpsed through someone else back yard.
Their small size keeps them secret and intimate.
