FINALIST. David Shepherd Wildlife Artist 2017 Finalist Society of Equestrian Artists 2017 Contributor SKETCH FOR SURVIVAL 2017 SKETCH FOR SURVIVAL 2018 I have no formal art training , but did get Art A level at school and have painted all my life. After thirty years working in a power station I took early retirement in 2001, and have had the opportunity to indulge in the pleasure of doing what I fancy, and painting is right up there. We live in the lovely country town of Stony Stratford .I have been married to Pauline for 48 years, have 3 Children 4 Grandsons and 2 Granddaughters .ages range from 3 to 25 year. I thank you for sparing the time to look at my work and for your comments, and If you spare the time to comment on my work I will make the effort to reply to you, so my apologies now if I miss out, it really is not intentional.
