Snowy landscape painting donated to help protect rural England
Mervyn Goode, one of the country's leading and most respected landscape painters who lives in Hampshire, has kindly donated a second beautiful oil painting to raise much-needed funds for the Hampshire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England. His painting: 'Sheep in the Snow beside the Hampshire Rother' (canvas size - 16" x 24"; size framed - 22" x 30") is to be exhibited by the Wykeham Gallery, High Street, Stockbridge (just opposite the church) from Wednesday, 26th October onwards. Gallery opening hours are Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm. Tel: 01264 810364 or email email@example.com
Examples of the artist's work are viewable online at www.wykehamgallery.co.uk and the painting can be seen at www.cprehampshire.org.uk. The entire proceeds due to the artist will be donated to CPRE Hampshire.
A keen naturalist, and ardent conservationist, Mervyn Goode has, for over 30 years, lived in a rambling country house near Hawkley in Hampshire. By donating a painting for sale, Mervyn Goode hopes that he will be able to highlight the invaluable work that CPRE Hampshire undertakes; and he hopes also that sympathetic readers will join him in becoming members of CPRE Hampshire.
