I am an artist painter, fortunate to live in one of the most interesting villages in South Yorkshire - Sprotbrough. My blog is about the subjects I have painted in the past, and more recently, since 2012 when I became Volunteer Artist in Residence, to raise funds for Potteric Carr, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's flagship nature reserve, the flora and fauna of this most beautiful and interesting reserve.
Spring arrived officially some weeks ago but, today, in the sunshine it was almost like summer, a very good day to put up a new display of my work in the much loved Kingfisher Tearooms in the middle of Potteric Carr, YWT, Nature Reserve.
In the main I chose paintings depicting the flowers, birds and butterflies that, over the coming weeks we will be seeing all over the reserve, and included a painting on driftwood, of the seals at the Grey Seal Sanctuary at Donna Nook on the Lincolnshire Coast.
Should you wish to purchase any of my work, the payment, either cash or card, can be taken at the till in the Kingfisher tearooms. I donate 50% of the price to the Trust.
