Hello Mr. Siskin!

You may remember my Siskin sketches of a couple of blog posts back, and also that in the last post I mentioned visiting the Leytonstone Arts Trail. Well, the trip to Leytonstone wasn't for pleasure alone, as the other purpose of my visit was to present the finished Siskin painting to it's new owner, Arts Trail organiser Flash Bristow. Siskins are her mother's favourite bird, and Flash commissioned the piece to give to her dear mum as a birthday gift. I really hope she enjoys it for many years to come!

  2. Thanks so much Mello, that's really kind of you! Love the chicken and ducks on your blog too, so much pattern crammed into one animal. Amazing :)
