A very Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Wishing you all a Blessed and Peaceful Christmas, I leave you with some images of a new miniature I have been working on, inspired by Medieval manuscripts.



The design is first worked in pencil


It is transferred onto a tea stained ground, the letter has been gilded with 24ct gold leaf.

  2. This is quite lovely.
    You have different robins than we do, smaller. I am told ours stay here all year, but I never see them in the winter. Mid spring they show up and I see them daily.
