Experiencing the natural world through art
Set off for Cheddar but got side tracked in Burrington Combe with this view of the old ash tree opposite the 'Rock of Ages' where Reverend Toplady was inspired when sheltering in the cleft in a storm to write the popular hymn in 1763. First days painting I had it all to myself before van loads of Mendip Outward bound school parties arrived on day 2 to do rock climbing and caving.
Here is my display space at the BS9 Art trail with 29 plein air oil paintings of Bristol around Sea Mills, The Portway, River Trym, The Severn Bridges, and Mendip scenes around Cheddar Gorge, Priddy and Blagdon, plus a few streams , mountains and falling down sheds from further afield. The Art Post on the right is rented from Stuart Nurse http://www.art-post.co.uk/
