The Six Badgers
As I was a-hoeing, a-hoeing my lands
Six badgers walked up, with white wands in their hands.
They formed a ring round me and, bowing, they said:
‘Hurry home, Farmer George, for the table is spread!
There’s pie in the oven, there’s beef on the plate:
Hurry home, Farmer George, if you would not be late!’
So homeward went I, but could not understand
Why six fine dog-badgers with white wands in hand
Should seek me out hoeing and bow in a ring
Just to inform me so common a thing!

11. JENNY WILSON
Jenny Wilson was born in 1971 and is a self-taught artist who has painted in oils since the age of twelve. She then attended some evening gatherings focusing on painting with oils, together with her grandmother and mother in the small village in Sweden where she grew up. Now living in Leicestershire, she has painted more seriously over the last 5 years and has had Worldwide success.
Nearly all my work is inspired by the ever-changing colours through the passing of the seasons in the local landscape along roads I travel every day. I never aim to copy but simply to capture the mood and light without focusing on details. All my paintings are done by pallet knife using oil paint, mainly on canvas. I tend to be drawn by the dramatic colours created by angry, grey skies but also by the beautiful, captivating colour transformation the evening light blesses us with.
With every day that passes my love and appreciation of the “everyday” and ordinary grows bigger. The wonder and miracles brought to us by seasons and weather, in both landscape and sky never fail to amaze me, specially the abundance of various colours. With my paintings I want to frame these “ordinary miracles” and let people discover and enjoy what often would just pass them by.
I feel truly lucky to be able to spend my working days emerged in the beauty, tranquillity and fulfilment my time in the studio bless me with.
