“She whispered her name was Joy”- is a watercolour painting of a magpie with fairies and promise of spring.
I made three paper mache magpies, two of which immediately found a home, leaving me with just one… “for sorrow”. But I didn’t mind, because I am not in the least bit superstitious, and because I thought, well… her name must be Joy. “She whispered her name was Joy” sounded like a poetic idea from a children’s storybook, and it might be fun to imagine that and have a crack at painting it. With a little help from Vincent van Gogh who inspired the almond blossom branch, I made a painting full of hope, the promise of new life, and the joys of spring. A couple of little faery folk emerging from a carpet of wood anemones give it a kind of storybook magic and someone for the magpie to whisper her name to.
When you visit the University of Oxford’s Natural History Museum its a job to know where to look - at the marvellous exhibits? Or at the magnificent architecture? In this painting you'll spot a dodo, some dinosaur footprints, the swifts that nest in the tower, a dinosaur skeleton and so much more! My favourite bit is the frog in the jar. What's your's? The title comes from Charles Darwin's book 'The Origin of Species' in which he wrote of his theory of evolution by natural selection: "There is grandeur in this view of life..." The print is last one of a limited edition (of 4) hand-made drypoint tinted with watercolour - 450mm x 700mm.
