Affinity Puffins (Painting)

Throughout August and September I’ve been working on this – the Affinity Puffins.

A pair of puffins painted as a wedding present for friends. Puffins mate for life.

Each deep box canvas is 20cm square and in acrylics.

    We got our puffin thankyou cards back at the weekend too and they look really nice – can’t decide whether to send them out now or wait til next week when there might be some photos to put in them… oh decisions decisions!

    They had a border/ mount on the website which by coincidence was very close to the colours on the paintings. Top banana!
