Here’s the latest in David Wyatt's beautiful Local Characters series, inspired by the people who live in our Dartmoor village. This one, called “A Winter Lamentation,” is a mythic portrait of fellow-artist Rima Staines. (Tilly & I were honored to be part of the series a few years ago, and there have been many more magical paintings since then.)
David explaines the name: “A couple of years ago there was a funeral fire for Thomas, husband of Lunar, where Rima played the flute beautifully on a cold winter’s afternoon. This picture has been haunting me ever since, so it was good to finally get it down.”
