A wall of flys…love it!


I have just come across this artist -Michelle Charles, I was particularly taken with the piece she produced for Kettle’s Yard entitled ‘Even a fly has a soul’  and her paintings of milk bottles onto the cover of books.  The above image is similar to an idea I had last week when I heard a news report saying that 95% of Scottish wrens may have perished after the horrendous winter we’ve just had…I thought of painting 100 wrens on separate papers to illustrate the statistic – it could be good!
