In changeable weather as I went to put up my wildlife camera I caught a glimpse of the sun shining particularly on this one field, I have noticed it before and it always brings to mind this wonderful poem by R S Thomas The Bright Field I have seen the sun break through to illuminate a small field for a while, and gone my way and forgotten it. But that was the pearl of great price, the one field that had treasure in it. I realise now that I must give all that I have to possess it. Life is not hurrying on to a receding future, nor hankering after an imagined past. It is the turning aside like Moses to the miracle of the lit bush, to a brightness that seemed as transitory as your youth once, but is the eternity that awaits you

I am going to pop my wildlife camera out again today, hopefully we can get some more foxy footage, would like to see a badger as well as I am sure they visit us… Watch this space . .. this is a little sketch in acrylic on paper. . . #peopleandanimals #anthrozoology #foxpainting #contemporaryart #wildlifewatching #cornwallart #wildlifeart #art #illustration #wildlife #naturalworld #mixedmedia #humananimalrelationship #wildlifecamera

Bleached moor grass in winter has a wonderful mellow colour here and against the deep orange/red/brown of the bracken I find it quite exciting! But my memory of this little painting was the jackdaws chattering and wheeling around the sky… I find spending time time in the landscape relaxing sometimes almost mediative , but I become much more alert when I see or hear birds :). . . .#cornishlandscapepainting #painting #landscape #mixedmedia #sketch #acrylicpainting #mixedmedia #landscapepainting #cornishmoors #cornwall #moorland #wintermoor
