Suffolk Wildlife Trust have a campaign to get a copy of The Lost Words into schools in Suffolk and Norfolk. To support them Robert and I worked on a new piece that will be printed and pasted into the front of each book.
And while I was painting the owl I filmed the process, speeded up.
I also painted a feather and the Trust will make a bookmark from the feather for each child in school. The artwork for the feather will be won by someone who donates to the appeal, and here’s the link for that.
The film is curiously meditative. I’ve watched it a few times to try and see how I paint.
I love these pieces where Robert writes on my paintings, and love so much that he is drawing words.
To be read aloud, albeit in a hush-winged way.
