First Outing is Manchester for Latest painting
'Flowers for Swallows' was just completed in October and will be shown publicly for the first time at the Manchester Art Fair in November 2023.
"Swallows are such tiny birds and yet they repeatedly make the journey from Britain to South Africa every year travelling by the shear effort of flapping their own wings. I find them amazing and my latest painting seeks to imagine a glorious welcome back of apple blossom and Gerbera or 'African Daisies' for these heroic birds. The flowers are food for some of the many insects which in turn are food for the Swallows which they catch on the wing. If we lose the insects we will lose these wonderful birds and much more. Give them a hand and plant flowers."
