Spring, St James’s Park

40 x 29 cms, oil (alkyd) on canvas, framed.

Sarah’s birthday present, October 2021

This was actually a hot Sunday at the end of February, a month more usually associated with winter before global warming. The park had attracted masses of sun-worshippers, but the two girls in the foreground seemed curiously detached from the crowds.

The painting subsequently became my goddaughter Sarah’s 40th birthday present.
