Two Redwings my third painting of the four Thrushes to be seen in Britain albeit only in the winter when these birds have to leave their summer homes in Scandinavia to find food in Britain and southern Europe. My painting shows them in an apple tree, a favourite fruit for them, where they will finish off any remaining apples on the tree and quickly move off to another tree. My next painting, the last of the four for this group will be a Mistle Thrush.

Things are now on the move for the O.B.A. Art trail which will take place on the weekend 10th. 11th. and 12th.of May. There will be about 10 venues in and around Radstock and Midsomer Norton showing paintings from about 20 of our artists.This painting of fieldfares is the second of the four thrushes seen in Great Britain. I hope to have the series finished well before the trail starts.
