Over the last few months, we have been very privileged to welcome local artist, Donald Macauley into the Wildlife Area as he has painted this wonderful view of the London Plane with the mound and Ilbert Street in the background. The colours from my camera do not do this justice!
Donald grew up in East Anglia during the 1950s where the wild flowers among the corn, clouds of butterflies, and largely quiet, safe roads were his playground.
He has been painting since he was 16 and studied art at Reading University. However, it is only in his early retirement, he has found the time to fully embrace his talent.
He has been living in the Queen’s Park estate since 1984 and we are lucky to have him among us.
Please take a look at Donald’s other work at his website here.
If anyone would like to exhibit his work locally,
do get in touch.
