New paintings https://brendajones.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/3/new-paintings I have put this painting on the website, it is part of a little series called Ramblings.  I never know how to title paintings, but as I do all my thinking whilst walking and swimming and so on, the title makes sense in some way.    I am not totally sure about it, but it has some interesting characteristics, the other two are on the website also.  I rather like the other two.
