  2. Great thought, I wonder if being eaten by something cool makes one feel more privileged. ;) The art is great, I could tell it was a Kingfisher right away. Is that colored pencil or pastel? And I love the background all blending like that.

  3. ...if a tree if cut down to make pulp and paper, and the paper is used to hold the paint of a picture of a "king", should the tree and its thousands of descendants feel like Royalty too?

    1. Definitely. Or the branch before the tree is cut, because a kingfisher sat on it. Branch "by appointment..."!

  6. 'A very efficient fisher I'll be bound !' says D. We like the way you have captured the alertness so well contrasting with the soft background and rough bark. D&M xxxx
