Hot off the easel is a new painting of an Eagle Owl, inspired
by seeing these majestic birds in Southern Spain. In this painting
I tried to capture the soft early morning light and the owl
surrounded by spiky branches. How did I do? See
the finished painting here...

Open Studios - save the date(s)
Stroud's annual Open Studios seem a long way off at the moment
but I'm sure it will be upon us before we know it. I've just
registered to take part again this year, so the key weekends
for your diaries are 9 & 10 and 16 & 17 May. Studio visits at
other times of the year by appointment.

Habitat Trust Conservation Stamp
Each year the WHT commissions wildlife
artwork for a £5 stamp to raise funds for conservation projects.
Illustrious British wildlife artists have created the artwork
in previous years, including Rodger McPhail, Keith Shackleton,
Bruce Pearson, Terence Lambert, Robert Gillmor, Keith Brockie
and Andrew Haslen. I've submitted three
paintings of Mallards at Bridgewater Bay and the stamp
will be unveiled at the CLA Game Fair,
30 July - 2 August 2015.
