“Fish and Ships” is the title of my shared exhibition with stamp collage artist Rachel Markwick currently on at the Amberley Inn Stroud until the 30th October 2017.We have been lucky enough to have sold some pictures already; this one of mine was sold today.
Currently the ponies painting is a work in progress, it would be great to think I will finish it soon and that (fingers crossed) a space might be made to hang it.

A sheep from the Trossach’s which does not actually belong to Penny but does wander around her garden and Cottage Holiday Let as it is open to the farmer’s field.
….thanks to Boondockers Farm in Oregon for permission to use their photo. These pigs were imported to the US during the 1900’s for breeding. “British folklore claims the large black spots are bruises caused by the apples falling onto them as they foraged the orchard floors for food.”
Attempt number two for the day …more textures and layers on this Hobby, an aerialist falcon taking its prey on the wing.
Sometimes it is of great relief that a painting is finished. So here finally, after a few months or so is a painting without a title. Usually a title arrives for me almost immediately along with the idea, or the painting itself. This one not so .
So please help me and feel free to suggest a title for this one.

Last week I had an enquiry regarding some artwork which I made at a time here in the UK when there was great petitioning against the culling of badgers in a couple of counties including Gloucestershire. Farmers have a hard time with TB in their cattle, to great distress to the cattle, the farmers and the industry.
Unfortunately the native badger has been implicated in the spread of TB in the UK. Whether this is true or not it is difficult to tell in reality with the different sides providing arguements both for and against. I prefer to fall on the side of the badger, it’s population is displaced by culling leading to other complicated issues for both the animal and with regard to establishing cause and effect of the problem of TB.
I have seen the wild badgers who liked to frequent a friend’s garden, and enjoyed tidbits of peanut butter. Their coats were much shaggier that I imagined and it was so nice to see them ambling about the lawn in their element.
This original artwork Badger Love is now on its way to the USA to its new home.
