The White Wash

Oil on board 40 x 50 cm SOLD
Its Monday and its a good sunny day, its wash day!  Just finished this painting of washing hanging about in a sunny back yard.  I am very fond of a line of clean clothes drying in the sun.  Years ago I had a house with an orchard and the washing line was strung between two old apple trees.  It was almost a treat to go and peg out the clothes, especially in the spring with the scent of apple blossom or the autumn with the perfume of ripe apples.  It has to be a washing line though, not the spinny round ones, good old fashioned lines are the ones for me.

Love the feel of this, fresh, blossoming apple trees wafting wonderful scents across the clothes. Beautiful!
