Everybody loves the Georgian Houses It seems like certain styles never go out of fashion. Last year Georgian-style houses topped a poll of the most popular home styles. I suspect that people like scale of the house as well as the the pillars and generous sized windows. Nothing says lord of the manor like a […]
Northern Ireland’s Tourism is very impressive. At Whiterocks Beach, just along from Portrush, there is not one, not two but three small carparks and a public toilets which are all free to use. What’s more, there’s another car parks specially for horses and their horseboxes. I will point out though, that there is height restriction […]

This exhibtion included paintings, many resin […]
I spent almost a month in the Cotswolds visitng with my parents recently and had a bit of time to explore. They live near Stroud which TV programmes like “Escape to the Country ” tell me is the “poorer part of the Cotswolds”. I think “poor” may well be in the eye of the beholder. […]

All five are beautiful paintings!
Thank you, Hien.
You’ve done a wonderful job here, Emma!
There’s something quite majestic and solemn about the Sitting Bull. I really like the color palette too.
I think the bulls are so massive that they end up looking quite serene because it’s a lot of effort to move, and I don’t think they need to. There’s not a lot they are worried by. It’s funny that bulls have such a reputation in stories for being dangerous but these Gower bulls (and cows) are very laid back. No rings in their noses. The only ones who people say watch out for are the mother when their calves are little, will get protective. That’s understandable. i think its because they are very used people walking past them on a daily basis. The sheep and ponies on the Gower common lands (where they roam freely, not in fenced off fields) are pretty much the same.
great paintings, all of them . You have a very good job Emma 🙂
Thank you, Cecile.
I always liked the German Angus breed.The pure black makes them more mysterious.
Great paintings Emma!
We have Black Welsh cattle here, I didn’t know there was a German Angus breed (I’m not a farmer but a townie) but I am familiar with Aberdeen Angus. I looked them up and the German Angus is a version of Aberdeen with German genes added in. Fine looking animals!
Love cows, and their gentle faces. You capture them beautifully. My grandad used to raise them as a farmer, which although it was his ‘second’ job, it was the one he was most suited to with his gentle nature.
Thank you, Marie. Yes, many small farmers in Wales also have to have “other” jobs to keep things going.
lucky cows, hanging out at the beach! I love this series, the white cow the most.
What a beautiful series Emma!
Thank you, Cindy
