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.

When I come across artist websites I do not imagine at that moment that they are in fact defined by other activities as well. When you come across an Accountant you might also apply the same rule?
As or myself, I am the embodiment of both Artist and Accountant (but from a previous life before children)! And other stuff that I do.
Spot the difference:
I also design websites for artists and have finalised a transfer of a website I manage to the WordPress platform today for a dear artist friend whose fantastic birds and animal drawings and painting scan be found here. Take a look at another approach to the same subject of animals and birds by Jilly Cobbe.
As Rooks have taken to chimneys where they may have lost their habitat and Peregrines have taken to our urban buildings, churches and so on in the same way, I have also learnt today how Little Owls are struggling with their population and are unfortunately not a protected species.
I was invited to listen to a talk on Birds of Prey, and then happily followed it up with a drink in the Falcon!
The painting above is of a mythological bird is based on Verreaux Eagle native to Zimbabwe. The Thunderbird has powers over the storms and is currently at Studio 71 ( I mean the painting and not the storms!) and framed for sale. Message me for further details.
All sorts of painting ideas currently on the go. These birds have attitude!
