PUTTING ZETTIOLOGY INTO CHESTERFIELD

Well I thought to myself, if i'm taking Zettiology TO Chesterfield, Derbyshire, I may as well put Chesterfield into the Zettiology. lol.

This is the 5th painting I will be exhibiting, and I'm liking this one a lot. It's not very often that i do like my own paintings, but this one has got to me. Maybe because it's about my two passions, zettiology and Chesterfield, my birthplace.
I still get a buzz when i'm arriving at Chesterfield, and see the famous Crooked Spire . This is featured in the painting. All of the buildings are of Chesterfield town. It's a great shopping place, great atmosphere and markets on Monday, Friday and Saturdays, and a 'flea' market on Thursdays. There are also special markets throughout the year. see the above link.
Chesterfield is one of the oldest markets in the country, having been granted a charter in 1204 by King John.
The ram is the symbol of Derbyshire, but not usually seen zettied up roflol

Acrylic on Canvas
24" x 20"
The trouble with this photo, is that you cannot see the fine details. c'est la vie.

Margaret I LOVE this canvas. If I was going to that exhibition I would want to buy that one!!! What a shame I live so far away (and it is huge).
I am loving these canvases for your exhibition - great art! You are one talented lady.

Oh Margaret ... my twinnie across the sea, I love this painting. I have so missed you at the site, but at least I see now what's kept you away ... you're an amazing artist my friend. I would love to see Chesterfield with you someday.
