November Display of Paintings at Potteric Carr YWT Nature Reserve.

 Most of the paintings on display in the Kingfisher Tearooms at Potteric Carr YWT Nature Reserve reflect the season, from Hibernating Hedgehogs to Baby Seals at Donna Nook, a Barn Owl and Britain's favourite bird, the Robin.

This part of my display is close to the window and comes complete with reflections in the glass.  

The painting on driftwood of 'Baby Seals at Donna Nook' was inspired by a visit there last November and the extraordinary piece of driftwood I found.

'Barn Owl Hunting'

Kingfisher Tearooms at Potteric Carr, a lovely place to stop for light refreshment or a meal, right in the center of the reserve...... 

  Cream teas and hot chocolate are absolutely scrumptious..

Persons wishing to purchase any of my work, can pay,  either cash or card,  at the till in the tearooms.
