Bill Yardley, farmer and artist, resides in Warwickshire, England, where his observations on his 200 acre farm give rise to works of art that show the inherent nature of his animal subjects. I am quite fond of the sheep and hens—being a carer of these animals myself. But the fox makes my heart race (one just raced across the road in front of us on Friday night) and the owl is showing that expression of both shock and wisdom that endears me to owls when I am lucky enough to see one.
I read a full article about Bill in the January edition of Country Living UK (which is nowhere to be found online). Worth a look if you can find one at your local bookstore.
