I am so excited this morning, finally, after years of the little nesting box in my garden being empty, I have a little Bewick’s Wren building a nest. I will post a photo when Barry brings the camera back! He is teaching a workshop all week.
8 x 8 Oil/Panel – Sold
This painting was commissioned as a gift for someone’s birthday. The eggs indicating how many children had already left home and the one cracked egg left in the nest is the teenager… about to embark on independence. It was a lovely commission to paint since I had been doing my own nests, with my own symbolism… First Born, Then there were Two and The Complete Set. I guess I should post those too! It’s Monday morning and I am planning on getting some large paintings started this week.
Feeling really tired after etching yesterday. We never leave until really late, so it means going to bed after midnight! (Too late for me). It’s just too much fun to leave and it was Eli’s birthday yesterday, so we had cake!
Here are some of Eli’s paintings http://www.argos-gallery.com/eli1.htm
I will post some etchings later….

This painting is inspired by a walk that I took last year with my good friend Melanie who lives in Cambridge. Knowing how much I love meandering rivers and the light at dusk she drove me out to this area, Stow Cum Quy, in the fens. The sunset was breathtaking.
