I first started this picture at Christmas time in 2003. Basically I was at a loss for something to do, so I began looking at old photographs of Bishop Auckland and thought I would try and piece together a picture of the market place and how it used to be. Having had fond memories of visiting the market on a weekly basis with my mam, I remember the colours, the sounds, the old fashioned lights, and the vibrancy and bustle of market life. I’ve also injected some little features into some of my paintings, to add a touch of humour.
