Hafod – Peacocks in Paradise

Hafod Estate in Wales.
This is part of the Ladies Walk at Hafod. Well worth looking up this enchanting place if you like walking.
There is a wonderful book called ‘Peacocks in Paradise’ relating the history and relationship Hafod has with Croft Castle in Shropshire.

Magical poem by Mikai ~ a recent commission

‘The natural world you hold in your hands
will speak things that are hidden
and unfold dreams
into your minds eye’
Words by Mikai.

A recent commission in watercolour and gold.

🐚

Mikai is 10 and wrote this short poem last year.
His grandma commissioned this piece for her daughter, Mikai’s mum.
I loved working on this one very much.
It seemed to unfurl by itself and naturally with suggestion from Mikai’s words.

🌿 Wren ~ a new watercolour

Wren and Ladybirds

Watercolour and 24 carat gold leaf. Available unframed. Update SOLD

I’ve been thinking about doing a Wren since a bird watching friend mentioned that this little bird might be a good subject for a painting. I have to let an idea sit for a while and then sometimes it decides for itself that it’s time to appear.

The tiny Wren is the most common bird in the UK – something I hadn’t known until exploring further for this painting. He is kept company by Ladybirds and ivy, which they often nest behind.

Hope you like him!
