Last week I completed what was rather an unusal assignment - painting a logo on the large, heavy canvas awning outside 'The Butcher's Dog' micropub in Driffield. This was something of a challenge for me; it's so far away from my usual style and method of painting. I can't take any credit for the design though, I just had to copy it from the existing pub logo.
The friendly folk of Driffield are not known for holding back their opinions and wisecracks, so I came in for my fair share of comments while I was painting 'on site', but my favourite was from a little girl who looked up and announced loudly: "It's a horsey!" Maybe I should stick to the day job!
