Brecon Beacons

Here is another painting I finished this week for the Small Picture Show. It is the Brecon Beacons from Brynych.
Today I was having breakfast listening to Carly Simon when I witnessed a fight outside. A female/hen blackbird had assumed the rights of ownership of the contents of the bird table and was driving off any attempt by two male blackbirds to share in the feast. She would then sit in the tree and wait for them to have another try, swoop down, peck and scold them until they flew away. The strange thing is that when Christopher Robin came along he was allowed to have his fill as was Simon Sparrow.
I have an oil to finish off today and I suppose I ought to do some work in the garden!
