I am very pleased to tell you that my linocut (above) has been accepted for the 2020 Birds in Art exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wisconson.
May is my favourite month of the year. A time of new growth and regeneration. Through the combination of cut lino and watercolour I have tried to capture perfect hard edge shapes and fresh hues associated with this time.
A newly arrived whitethroat and painted lady butterfly have both migrated up from Africa only for the butterfly to become a tasty morsel for the whitethroat. A brown hare, another sign of spring, watches on as the drama unfolds while enjoying the warming rays of the sun. Fresh spears of bracken fronds emerge through the colours and patterns of last seasons growth.
