This acrylic painting is a representation of a scene I recently encountered on a Spanish road trip. The colours from the Mediterranean sunrise against the hillside and ruins inspired me to pull away from my normal muted palette and embrace the warm tones of this beautiful place!

Title or Location: The Lord of the Skies
The Philippine Eagle is critically endangered. Considered the largest Eagle in the world it has been declared the national bird of the Philippines and was previously known as the Monkey Eating Eagle. Its habit is threatened by deforestation and its numbers are decreasing. I've always loved to see images of this bird since I was a child , in particular its piercing blue-grey eyes. Hopefully it will not dissappear in my children's lifetime.

In this piece, a solitary crow perches elegantly on the edge of a moonlit pool, its feathers glistening with an ethereal sheen. The scene is set within the hauntingly beautiful ruins of an ancient courtyard, where ivy-clad arches and weathered stone walls whisper tales of forgotten times. The moon, full and luminous, casts a silvery glow across the serene water, creating an almost magical reflection that seems to merge the boundaries between reality and fantasy. Flickering torches line the passa
