Hi Everyone, hope you are all well.
I have been working hard and finally finished my latest painting called 'Broken Britain.'
I am not normally politically minded but like everyone in the country, I was tired of the Brexit saga that seemed to drag on forever. So I decided to reflect my views on canvas.

Brexit is represented as a game of chess being played inside the House of Commons. On one side is the anti Brexit people and the other side is Boris and the pro Brexit people, all represented as animals. A destructive storm wreaks havoc and a huge crater divides the board.

Depression. An awful condition affecting millions. Sufferers often hide their desperation. A close family member is a sufferer, so I wanted to tackle the subject. A handsome actor. His mirror reflecting a happy, successful man. The reality side shows a sad, lonely man who's lost everything.

Wren chicks with beaks gaping wide from hunger are crying for food. Their dutiful parents sit nearby. One has a delicious moth to satisfy their cravings.
But all is not as nice and idyllic as it seems. The chicks are not the only birds hungry. A magpie has spotted them and eagerly eyes the babies.

Cenarth is a wonderfully picturesque village in Wales that I visited and I just had to paint it.
Cenarth Falls are a cascade of delightful waterfalls and pools. Set astride the river Teifi, this beautiful, idyllic village is famous for it's annual salmon leap.
