An art lover’s house in Roundhay, Leeds. The owners requested a drawing in colour and I was happy to oblige. Painted last week on watermarked T & J H Kent paper from c.1950.
Emley Moor transmitting station in Kirklees, West Yorkshire. The tallest freestanding structure in the UK at 1084 feet high, and a Grade II listed building.

once a month, usually the last Saturday.
This was a particularly windy day
~ and I did not blow away.
Local law firm in Oakwood, LS8. I like this building a lot – although have not had reason to cross the threshold yet.
A local Viking who kindly agreed to sit. Pet has striking features which I am drawn to draw.
An art lover’s house in Oakwood, Leeds – early one morning, the end of August. The trampoline is going soon, but the owners and I were glad it features in the drawing. Can you see the Witch on her broomstick weathervane?
The last day of the summer holidays…
warm, sunny and showery.
Walking and scooting round the lake,
having a good time and
eating ice cream,
feeding the ducks and
looking at the clouds and
Our house, is a very, very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard, life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy, ’cause of you…
Late August, the leaves seem more black than green.
I don’t want to go in the woods when they are like this.
Heavy and sweet smells of rotting.
