I finally completed a painting, it's been a long time since I finished anything bigger than my sketchbook!
It is an entrance pillar to and old villa but I've given it a slightly surreal feeling, although the painting is not as yellow as this in real life.
I often go by this entrance as it's just off one of the main roads and I've always been drawn to the snail- like curled stone. You can just imagine the carriages and horses that must have gone rattling past in the old days.
Now they are using this old place for wedding receptions but I noticed that someone has recently filled in all the lovely holes and cracks in my pillar with pink cement. What a sacrilege!
