'The Roundabout'

'The Roundabout' by Stanley Spencer, Hampstead, 1923

It's very cold here again today and there is still a sense of waiting for the big thaw for things to get moving, back to normality. Perhaps that's why I am drawn to this rather cold looking painting today... Potentially a lonely scene with no one around to enjoy the swings ...or maybe, just maybe, a nod towards better things to come when the weather improves?
