Charlecote Park, England

Charlecote Park, England
11 x 14 inches
Oil on canvas.
Several years ago, the family and I spent a wonderful few hours at Charlecote Park, a lovely 16th century country house on the banks of the River Avon, a short distance from Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire, England. Local legend has it that a young William Shakespeare poached deer on the property.

This is a view of a garden walkway near the house, on a cloudy day.

What do you think? Did young Billy Shakespeare stalk a deer down this path? Probably not, but fun to think about anyway.

These are my daughters, Chelsea (L) and Margaux (R) walking down the long path to the Charlecote gatehouse. The garden path I painted is to the right of the house which you can see in the background beyond the gate.

Love this Bill. The colors are amazing and I really like the composition. Well done!

Somehow, I can't image William Shakespeare poaching deer, but I suppose we all did things out of character when we were young.

The texture and color of this piece are beauiful.
