Nuthatch with Cloud

Nuthatch with Cloud
12 x 10 Oil/Panel

This is a variation upon a previous painting, using the same nuthatch image as the previous etching. I am trying to find ways of incorporating my landscapes, albeit subtly, with my birds. I find it so hard to know when a painting is finished.


Eurasian Nuthatch – Sitta europaea

Nuthatch and the Bumblebee iii 12 x 12 Oil/linen panel

I worked on this painting a lot in the UK and brought it back here to finish. There always seems so much to do at this time of the year and now we have decided to knock down a few walls and upgrade our bathroom with a view to renting the house out eventually. It’s going to be a lot of work and I am dreading it! I hope I can hide in the studio, but I suspect I maybe called upon to do some of the hard graft! I hope everyone is enjoying their spring. It’s so hot here at the moment, I am finally getting some colour back in my cheeks playing tennis at lunch time with my friend Sue!
