I still have some paintings to finish off for my exhibition, which opens on November 4th and runs until 26th. I work mainly in oils and it is necessary to leave each coat of paint to dry before I can add the next, so what I tend to do whilst I’m waiting for a coat of paint to dry on one painting is work on the next. Interestingly different pigments take differing amounts of time […]

I’ve been very busy gearing up for my Christmas exhibition, which runs at my gallery in Thixendale, North Yorkshire, between November 4th-26th.  This year I’m planning to show a new collection of paintings featuring wild creatures posed against a winter-white backdrop. Foxes diving into deep snow drifts, hares warming in the winter sun and a kingfisher perched on a frosted branch are just some of the new winter wildlife paintings I plan to show. Painted in my […]

I think we share all the same emotions – grief, […]

Instead, this kingfisher decided to use my camera as a fishing post! I had mixed feelings about his choice: afterwards […]

I’ve been looking after a friend’s tawny owl while he has been in New Zealand. He was given to me in September, when some people found him starving in Birdsall. He was clearly a captive raised bird, that had either been released or had got lost. I fed him back to health, but didn’t really have the time or the space to look after him properly, as I’ve already got a pet barn owl ‘Fern’ […]

Last Sunday I took my family off to Pickering beck to find a heronry I’d heard of close to a public footpath. Sadly, we never found it and after a few hours of spotting nothing but squirrel dreys, six-month-old Lily was cold and tired so we turned homeward. I did notice, just at the spot I had been told to look, that the forest had been replanted – I hope this heronry hasn’t been cut […]
