#Fish and #Pheasants shimmer and gold.

There is soon to be an exhibition at the Amberley Inn nr Stroud which will include these artworks.  The Koi fish painting was a joy to paint and now needs a nice frame.  The exhibition will start on 1st September more details to follow.  In the meantime here is Halcyon and Wilderness Pheasants with lots of yummy (inedible) gold leaf.

New Raven Original Painting

Here is my original painting which is now called The Gatekeeper in a nice chunky black A3 sized frame, it is a painting of a raven holding a key.    Ravens are a common feature of ancient religion and mythologies from familiars of witches to the supernatural, from the carriers of  souls and associations with good luck, to trickery and foreboding.  According to legend, the  Kingdom of England will fall if the ravens of the Tower of London are removed; care has been taken to ensure that they continue to inhabit the Tower as they have done now for centuries.
