...a remote church in the Black Mountains, with the shrine of St Issui, and, in the valley below, a holy well. A good place, and I like going there. There's all sorts of things going on in the picture, but I'll leave them for you to find and put your own story on. (Click on the picture to see it large)

A picture for the year's turning. I've been thinking of how to do this picture for ages, and then just got stuck in and hoped for the best. There are bits of it I'm really happy with, and I'm also happy that I've started the new year with a new picture. Even though it meant I was very antisocial on New Year's Eve.

I've got some prints done, and they are available in my Etsy shop. There are two sizes, small (roughly A4) and large (roughly A3). 

There's a Fibonacci spiral in there somewhere, by the way!


  1. Wow! so busy. An alert just came up saying that it was your 13th birthday, this is a very good picture for a 13 year old!

  2. how exciting! Can I have jelly and presents and stuff?

    1. Of course but you will have to come here...

      BTW, your comments settings don't keep folk updated , I just came back for a second look. Everyone loved their christmas cards and all that I saw had been given centre stage.

  3. I love this picture, especially how you rendered the trees. Haven't spotted that Fibonacci spiral yet...

  4. it starts at the source, as it were; in the well. Any help?

  5. Not dead and buried just waiting to be reborn.

    I see it, it's the other way around.
