Incredible Edible

Incredible Edible is a lovely idea, and a surprise for anyone taking a walk round War Memorial Park, Basingstoke.  Not far from the skateboard park, it’s a community orchard planted by volunteers, so that passers by can enjoy a healthy snack of fruit and nuts plucked straight from trees with wonderful names: Deacon’s Blushing Beauty, Nettlestone Pippin and the Howgate Wonder to name just three.  My oil painting shown here is an artistic interpretation of the place (where I took the photo).  I just finished painting another one on the same theme, taking in the skatepark too, but you’ll have to visit The Basingstoke Project to see it at Proteus Theatre’s Creation Space gallery, Council Road, Basingstoke, 16 – 26 November.
