A White Butterfly in the Autumn Garden

A White Butterfly in the Autumn Garden, 2011, watercolour 19 x 29 inches.

In Melbourne, the small town in Derbyshire where I was born, there is a stately home with formal gardens and a walk between ancient yews. The yews are rather like huge duvets enfolding the path between them, and as a child I found them mysterious and spooky. The visitor along the path is captivated by the dancing figures of the sculpture and is almost lifting a leg to emulate their movement.
