Woody's paintings

I just thought I'd post a link to this piece of art by Woody. The quality of the work is excellent so I thought I'd post this to hope it finds wider attention

That's really top notch. Beats the socks off a lot of the bird paintings that get printed on Christmas cards.

I am the proud possessor of a Woody original (the little owl he uses for his avatar). Everyone who sees it says how good it is.

That sparrow is wonderful too.

Thangewe! Thangewe! And once again hiy thangewe!


Seriously Pete and all, thanks for your kind words.
I would have replied sooner but I've only just got back from a week in Norfolk and I still have friends from Singapore with me so my BF time has been a bit limited.

Yes I do have a website, yes I do sell my stuff (some of you may have met me at the Lee Valley bird fair last year?) but I don't tend to shout about it here because I'm here for the company and advice, not to advertise my painting.

Cheers
Woody

I think you might've misidentified the bird in the painting though - pretty certain it isn't a male woodcock...



(How many times have you heard that one, Woody?)

Fantastic work though - i'm insanely jealous of skill like yours.
