Caroline Kent

This rather wonderful image is by the artist Caroline Kent, who I have known for almost 40 years. It was submitted to this year's Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and chosen for the exhibition which is sadly online only at the moment.

It is entitled 'Unemployed Gargoyles and Grotesques' and shows the roof of Notre Dame, following the competition theme of the lockdown and Covid-19's impact on society.
I am fortunate to own several of Caroline's paintings, and two hang by my desk at home for inspiration. They show familiar landscapes in the Peak District, and a woodland floor packed with fly agaric mushrooms...
At this time of year, I also turn back to the work of Ronald Lampitt and his Christmas scenes - seek out art and landscapes at this dark time of year...
