A jaunty elderly man, all dressed and booted on his way to the shops in Uplands, Swansea.
I loved his cheerful sense of purpose and his 1970s sunglasses, that slightly look at odds with the rest of his clothing.
The title of the painting has a double meaning as in still time to get to the shop and a moment of time frozen in time, made still. Still time.
This is a signature type of painting for me - painting people walking around in their everyday lives. Painting moods, anticipations and atmospheres. Creating presence and pathos.
