Plans and painting The Treasury, Lewes

sketched in my book, planning colours

all drawn out 
first layers of dirty paint!

All done "once I was loved"

have a peep in the window

The Treasury at the top of the High Street in Lewes has always intrigued me. A window full of curiosities, covered with cobwebs and dead flies, never appearing to change or ever be open for business!
I decided to paint this for the February hang at Chalk Gallery. Curiouser and curiouser, the shop opened for the four afternoons I was working on the painting! I didn't go in...prefering to leave the inside to my imagination.
I wonder if it will open up again?
