Keeper of the Forest


For some reason, the Green Man has always frightened the willies out of me - but yours does look quite sympathetic.

Wonderfully folkloric. There is so much lovely detail in it.

Stunning work Ann! Love the detail. Beautiful birds, mouse and butterfly!

A beautiful painting of a mythical creature , would be a fine illustration in a few book. Love all the small detailing , so beautifully done.

Wow, would love to do this jigsaw. Now, he IS a frightening character (it's the hand!). Another superb piece of imaginative painting

I would love to do this jigsaw also Ann, are you taking orders! Nothing scary about the Green Man….he’s a guardian, a sign of new life and beginnings and a herald of spring. It’s fabulous.

Again beautiful work Ann love the wren and little friends.

Thank you for the feedback. He is a bit creepy even though I chose a man with a kind face. Heather and Fiona, I did get some 750 piece puzzles made and have them for sale on my Etsy shop ‘AnnGriggArt’ if you’re interested.

Thanks for the info Ann, I’ll have a look at your shop.

Hi Ann, I’ve just ordered one of each, looking forward to passing a few winter hours building them!

Fiona,p Thank you Fiona, I’ve dispatched them today. I hope you enjoy them 😊

I am a self-taught artist working mainly with soft pastel and pastel pencils, and more recently, coloured pencils for the fine details I love. I’m inspired by all things natural and try for realism although I do go nuts with bright colours and abstract shapes occasionally. I also paint scenery…
