Woodman's Cottage

Sorry it's been so long since my last post, I haven't been doing much apart from painting.
The painting above is titled 'Woodman's Cottage' and I have tried to give it an autumnal feel.
Workshop is still way too cold, we have had snow over the past few days and it doesn't look like clearing yet, in fact it seems there is more to come.
I did have one little session in the workshop, been practising on producing cabriole legs, these are not easy but I think I have finally got there, so hopefully have some furniture made soon with this style of leg.
Stafford went well last week, was nice to meet up with lots of my regular customers and also got a nice surprise a few days ago when my photo was featured in the Express & Star newspaper along with a write up on the Stafford Fair.
Our next fair is at Stratford on Avon on February 10th.
Will also be updating my website over the next day or so with the list of fairs we shall be attending this year.


  1. Your painting is beautiful Dave.

    Cabriole legs are fairly easy to make if you have a drill press and use pin routing, you can see how I used pin routing in making Queen Anne chairs on my blog if you are interested.

  2. Thanks Elga, I will check out your blog

  3. Your painting is fabulous, as always.
