King StreetIt kept me awake all night… the urge to paint was too strong. I had finished at 3.30 in the morning facing 2.5 hours of sleep!!

But I was happy as I did it and I am happy now, so excited about this new piece. Its intensive colours, its blinding light…

King Street Clitheroe – It was getting dark at the sun set, I rushed to get prescription from Peter Buckley pharmacy. But it must have been 7 o’clock and I realised that all the shops around were closed, empty, lights off, very still… even the the Platform Gallery in the front seemed quiet, lacking its life..
There may have been some life in the pub across the street, I could sense people, probably staying in the ‘Old Post Hotel’. Maxwells caffee would welcome its guests, unless it’s Monday, that day they are closed.

I was out with the dog, who would walk underfoot, stopping me all the time to sniff and wee on walls and fences. 😆
Seeing that light, this haze of yellow net, hooked me like seeing a miracle… I may sound weird but I’m drown to those moment and am looking for magic- and ‘Magic’- would be a word the most suitable to describe that moment, that scene I saw…

I overslept that morning after painting all night! I was late for work and my son late for school…

But I am still happy now, being able to look at what I have achieved  and I can’t believe what emerged from under my hand, those colours are making me feel sooo good!
