Saint Francis and the Birds, 1989, watercolour, 19" x 24".
This scene is set in the farmyard of our house as it was when we arrived there, before it became a garden. The subject was an excuse to paint the birds and what I imagined the previous occupant, Antoinette, and her nephew Rene may have looked like.
