BIRDFAIR 2017

 

At Birdfair this year I'm celebrating the waxwing winter of 2016/7 with lots of paintings, prints and cards inspired by these wonderful birds.

 

FRIDAY to SUNDAY 18th - 20th August 2017

Rutland Water Nature Reserve, Egleton, Rutland LE15 8BT

The 'wildlife event of the year'.  Promoted by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust and the RSPB this is the place to get up to date with the lastest conservation projects or meet some of the hosts of your favourite nature programmes.

I will be in the arts marquee which is always packed with a wide variety of wildlife artists. I will be also be exhibiting my latest original paintings of 'best loved bird',  some signed limited edition prints and a wide range of greetings cards.  Come along and have a browse.  

 

I am also running a competiton to win a signed limited edition print of my recent sketches of waxwings.

 

 

 

WHAT A WONDERFUL YEAR FOR WAXWINGS!

 

 

These delightful, exotic, 'punky' birds have been a real inspiration for me this year.  They are not regular visitors to my neck of the woods here in Birmingham but this year they came in their hundreds, feasting on the abundant berries in parks and gardens. I have created a series of paintings that depict the time waxwings spend on our shores - arriving at the end of autumn on our eastern coasts, enjoying the fruits of a British winter and leaving as our trees and shrubs burst into flower. These and a whole host of cards and prints will be on sale at my next exhibition at Birdfair in Rutland in August.

What a lovely venue for an exhibition! Following a very successful opening night last Friday my exhibition is now in full swing.  It was a pleasure to meet so many enthusiastic art lovers last week and to have the opportunity to chat about the birds I watch and paint.  

The show runs until Spetmeber 14th so plenty of time to treat yourself to a restful break in this very beautiful part of the world.

Next stop....BIRDFAIR in Rutland  19th - 21st August
