Alnwick Castle
Joseph Mallord William Turner

I appreciate that there is just a bit more structure in this work compared to many of Turner's other paintings, and the deer in the lower left are sort of amusing. But this continues my Love-Hate relationship with the artist (not that he cares). Sometimes I love looking at his paintings...getting lost in the haze and the fog. And sometimes I snarl under my breath, "Just finish one, you pommy arse!"
