Bath Marathon II Day 1-4

This is a picture journal of the first 4 days on my 2nd Marathon in Bath! Not easy but sheer fun! Never in my life did I believe I'll be doing this,, but I thank God for my wife and two children who keep calling me and keeping me company with their jokes, stories and encouragement-when! Stay tuned more to come!

57- This stairway from Paragon to Walcot is a paradise when the light is good, one lady while passing was quite disturbed, she wondered how I managed to bring a bit of beauty out of place she had been passing for years and only thought, it needed cleaning. Well, that's one of the roles we artists play, we make people to see beauty in common things.

My goodness, what an inspiration you are. Will you post some of the finished paintings please?

adebanji said...

Thanks Bridget, I will see what I can do. You see, because they are for an exhibition later in the year, I can't show full paintings yet.
