I did this small oil painting about 20 years ago when we visited Shugborough Hall in Staffordshire.
Shugborough is a country estate in Great Haywood, Staffordshire, England, 4 miles from Stafford on the edge of Cannock Chase. It previously belonged to the Earls of Lichfield, the Anson family.
I am thinking of taking up my painting again and also want to concentrate on doing some writing as lots of ideas keep passing through my head and I need to write them down before they slip into oblivion. My photography is still something from which I gain a great deal of enjoyment but this blog is taking up too much of my time and I think that I will either stop doing it, or post much less frequently. I am reluctant to do this because I fear losing touch with many friends who visit here regularly but I know that I will find it difficult to pursue my other interests, let alone do necessary jobs at home, if I continue with Smithiesshutter.
So there we are…….I have enough material for about another 6 posts.
