The First Day Of The Year

Another great painting – ‘Scenes From The Passion: The First Day Of The Year’ – by George Shaw, of a scene no-one else but he would have thought to paint. It’s the view from his childhood bedroom window. For me it’s so full of unspoken hope that, despite everything, this year will be different, this year will be better.
