This series of paintings is inspired from travels aboard the narrowboat "wandering fox" from Rugby through Atherstone finally mooring at Hopwas woods in Staffordshire.

They are painted with sign-writers enamel on board, which is the same paint used for lettering on narrowboats.

The images show locks bridges trees and water, all inspired by life on the English waterways, reflected in the ever changing landscape, light on the water, the trees and change of seasons..
