Cornwall Wildlife Trust Art Exhibition

My painting "The Buzzard Rock" has such been selected for inclusion in Cornwall Wildlife Trust's Inspired and Wild touring art exhibition to take place this autumn at various venues across Cornwall

To quote from the CWT website -

"Cornwall Wildlife Trust is holding an exciting Art Exhibition this autumn, which will help to raise vital funds for the Trust as well as showcasing the wealth of local artistic talent from around the county. Entitled ‘Inspired and Wild: Celebrating Cornwall’s Art and Wildlife’, the exhibition will tour from 1st October until the end of January. The tour promises to be a fantastic way to raise awareness of the Trust’s work, and aims to display different interpretations of the wildlife and habitats it protects and conserves in Cornwall."

All work will be for sale with 40% of profits going to help fund the Trust's different conservation projects. Venues will include the The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Geevor Tin Mine, and the Cornish Studies Library as well as the CWT's own headquarters in Allet near Truro.

I love the rock in the middle of the painting, very real . . . reminds me of my first acrylic painting which was of a rocky landscape in devon . . . the gallery I took it to said "we don't take photographs" which was a nice compliment!

Anyway, nice story about the buzzards . . . I love watching them too.

Anyone who likes wildlife . . . check out my new wildlife blog!

Thanks for the compliment Chris! Rocks are great to paint I think, deceptively complex. Checked out your website by the way, very interesting, keep up the good work!
