Here is the Painting of Westwood Cross shopping centre, done this evening while the ladies in my family shopped.
I guess in times passed they would have spent the evening dancing around a maypole, and I guess that May Day falling on Freya's day, well at least The Lady’s day although not Lady Day would have been considered particularly fecundate.
The business with Sainsbury interested me, £1 for a very good pot of tea and of course the view across the large and deserted car park, as a shop assistant I couldn’t help but notice the staff pretty much outnumbered the customers.
I guess this is more pronounced in the photo than in the pen and watercolour sketch, of course working in a shop, I don’t get to shops during what would have been considered normal shopping hours, so don’t really have the comparisons.
Judging from the cars in the distance WC shopping centre was much busier, well fortunately I wasn’t there.
