This was a painting from notes made when on holiday on Lemnos many years ago. On a dark, cold and wet winter day I needed something to transport me somewhere warm and bright and my notes scrabbled their way to the surface.

This is a little painting that's been in draft form in my studio for a while. I walked over a bridge crossing this little stream while on holiday one year in Wengen, Switzerland. I've used my notes to help me get started painting again after too long a break. I think I may go back to the subject and treat it in different ways sometime.

I should have posted so much since the last one in August 2015 but life took over! I've been far from idle in the art world but sadly not able to find time to myself. Here is something that was printed and released in the autumn. It was commissioned by The Royal Regiment of Scotland and is a limited edition caricature available through my website http://www.alixbaker.com/military-caricature-shop/
