GillHurst.co.uk - Website now live

I have just completed working with Gill Hurst on developing her new website (www.gillhurst.co.uk) For anyone interested, the website was built using Wix (please go to wix.com for more info).

From this point on the website is in her hands and she should be able to update and amend any bits of the site she feels need it, without having to fork out any additional money for the work. That's got to be a happy customer?

For more information about getting yourself/business up and running with a cost effective solution to website design, please get in contact: theteam@missiongraphics.co.uk

The search for the 'Green Man'. Day1

This will be the start of a new painting based around the myth of the 'Green Man'. Wikipedia describes him as:


Green Man is a sculpturedrawing, or other representation of a face surrounded by or made from leaves. Branches or vines may sprout from the nose, mouth, nostrils or other parts of the face and these shoots may bear flowers or fruit. Commonly used as a decorative architectural ornament, Green Men are frequently found on carvings in churches and other buildings (both secular and ecclesiastical). "The Green Man" is also a popular name for English public houses and various interpretations of the name appear on inn signs, which sometimes show a full figure rather than just the head.
The Green Man motif has many variations. Found in many cultures around the world, the Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities springing up in different cultures throughout the ages. Primarily it is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, or "renaissance," representing the cycle of growth each spring. Some[1] [2] speculate that the mythology of the Green Man developed independently in the traditions of separate ancient cultures and evolved into the wide variety of examples found throughout history.
