On a riverside walk from by the river Thames, near Farmoor in Oxfordshire, I was thrilled and impressed with the dense clumps of yellow flag irises (Iris pseudacorus) at the riverbank. I grow these in my own garden pond.
This painted map of the Wharf Stream Way, a new permissive footpath through the fields and paths to the east of the village of Eynsham, was commissioned by West Oxfordshire District Council for an interpretation panel erected at the start of the walk. The panel gives walkers an idea of the nature they can spot as they walk, and the history of the features to be encountered on the route.

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.
