Catching up, settling in

Vitis vinifera

The last few months have seen total upheaval and little in the way of art work, plus no means to update this page. My last weeks in Lincolnshire included Open Studios, exhibiting work at Stamford Arts Centre and finishing this commission, Vitis Vinifera. This reminds me that here in Sussex, where life is still chaotic and strange, the local vineyards are close to harvesting their grapes after some blessed weeks of sunshine.

This commission for Ewan and Sarah, visitors to my Open Studio, incorporates text from Culpeper’s Herbal which roundly states that wine is ‘the greatest cordial among vegetables’ – i.e. good for the heart. What more to say?
