puzzles to while away the time between Christmas lunch and
the Downton Abbey Christmas Special. Seasons Greetings everyone!

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'm delighted to have been commissioned to
paint the 2015 stamp and I've just submitted the concept sketches.

Art Group Annual Exhibition

at the Lloyd's
Art Group annual exhibition.
