A year gone – again!

Yes, Somerset Artweeks again, with most of the necessary info¬† shown on the poster I created to put in the pub. And indeed it’s probably even wonkier than the image here: hard to get a drawing pin into the oak pillars of a traditional English pub. So thanks to Clive and Trish at the Ring O’Bell, Moorlinch for their ongoing support

The four pictures represent an ambitious attempt to feature the sections of a panorama from the top of Knoll Hill where you can, I hope, see that the images read from side to side and also up and down.  I have had to use a bit of artistic licence for the bottom two, moving a few posts and plants but it feels right to me, anyway.

British Wildlife

I suppose that sort of covers my greetings cards subjects these days – I have done the odd Polar Bear and some Highland cattle (not really usually wild, are they). And sheep and ponies – do they count? I have tried to add a new specimen annually as a Christmas card. So this year, having dallied a while with otters I finally settled on badgers and I will have the cards at my Somerset Art Weeks Open Studios 2019 exhibition (number 22).badgers - 18 14 001 resized

Last Christmas I branched out into coasters, although getting the subjects to form a nice square was challenging!
