My Paintings in YWT Potteric Carr Shop,

If you are thinking of visiting the beautiful Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve, Potteric Carr in Doncaster, be sure to have a look at my paintings on display and for sale in the shop as you walk through onto the reserve.  Cash or card can be taken at the till in reception.

These six small butterfly paintings are each framed in plain wood  and hanging behind  the Deer painting in the photograph above. 

This painting hangs behind the desk in reception and is the fourth Four Seasons Raffle painting.  
"Autumn Palett, Huxter Well Marsh"
acrylic on box canvas, 100cmx50cm.

The Four Seasons Raffle comprises four large paintings which I donated to raise money to help fund the release of Eels at Potteric Carr. One painting for each season, Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. Each one is being raffled separately throughout 2014 in that order.
By September this year we had raised £1600 with the first three paintings “A Potteric Winter, Highland Cattle in St Catherine’s Field” - “Piper Marsh Spring” and “Peacock Butterflies at Brockadale”, The fourth and final painting “Autumn Palette at Huxter Well Marsh” is now on display in reception at Sedum House and tickets are available at the desk. The winning ticket for this will be drawn on December 14th at Potteric Carr. We would like to raise a grand total of £2000, so fingers crossed, it would be wonderful to make our target..............
Can I hear the Bitterns booming in anticipation.?
