Thank you for your visit.

We hope you may take a few minutes to scan the various pages, rooms and options here. If anything is not clear, we equally hope that you will take a few more to let us know through the Contacts page. Indeed all and any thoughts on the new website would be welcome by myself and Sarah Willans of Zipfish who designed this site.

What you'll find

Sarah explains, this site is divided into different sections each devoted to Richard’s various work interests: Writing (Non-fiction & Fiction, and Poetry), Art (Painting), and Wildlife (Ecology) . These top headings lead to more detail, of which there's an abundance for anyone who's interested, divided into smaller parcels to make it easier to get to the sections which might be of more interest.  

The Blog contains earlier 'Random and Topical Thoughts on Fine Art'.  In future it is the intention to use the WordPress 'Of Art & Painting' Blog for future mutterings and ramblings with an outline here.  These will be irregular - when something seems important - and we hope you will sign up to follow these. 

There are also links to Richard's Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts at the foot of all pages.
