"It's leaden circles dissolved in the air" sold

18"x24" oil on canvas

It's finally finished - and given a name (besides Big Ben!). Taken from a line in "Mrs. Dalloway" by Virginia Woolf. My daughters are particularly fond of this painting after their semester in London. One of their classes being on the Bloomsbury Group of writers, including Virginia Woolf. This is Mrs. Dalloway's description of the chimes of Big Ben. (and now daughters are insisting I read the book!).

This particular view is mine as I walked through St James Park, looking back towards the big clock tower, daffodils in full bloom, on an afternoon in mid-March.

Anyone who's seen the big clock can appreciate this angle. You really have put a sense of time and place to it.
