Found It!

This little blighter had gone missing for a couple of weeks.
It was eventually found under a mound of 'in progress' pieces.
Nice to have it back in the arsenal.

Its Cold Out

Lets start with some moaning about the weather...
Its far too cold for my liking, I could've ice skated to work for the last week.
Bring on LA in February!

On the brighter side, it has given me some nice evenings in front of the fire, painting.
The piece above is to encourage you to go inside and get warm if you have ventured out on a freezing evening. Find a fire and some whiskey to warm those bones.

Next, some complaining about the state of modern architecture in this city.
The majority of it is pretty shit.
There are exceptions, and for these I am thankful.
But there seems to be a school of thought that the surroundings of a new build should not be considered when designing it, they lack character, individuality and any sense of taste.

Who decides what gets built and what doesn't?
Seems to be someone who likes too many straight lines, too much glass and commissioning ugly buildings.
Then build something interesting that may make people appreciate art and architecture.

Apologies for the poor quality photos.
Ill take better ones and get them up soon as.
