The Village under the Hill, 2006, oil, 18 x 22".
This little cluster of houses nestles in a valley. It is a favourite place of mine, cosy and secure behind its protecting hills and trees. In winter, however, it becomes extremely wet and muddy, and I have seen chickens perching in the lower branches of the apple trees to keep their feet dry!
