Just finished up another of the mini original paintings I will be donating to @antlerpdx for their annual 'Brink' show benefitting @portlandaudubon. I was shocked to learn the extent to which these stunning butterflies have been affected by climate change (although I hear that's not happening anymore, so I guess we're ok there? 😒) and herbicides that destroy the milkweed which are the only plant Monarchs lay their eggs on and feed their caterpillars. It's strange to think that such a previously common sight could be in such peril that some sources predict the high possibility of its numbers getting so low in the next 20 years that the species couldn't recover. If anyone would like to be on the preview list for this show please email gallerist@antlerpdx.com

Really enjoying working on these little original owl portraits! This last little Texan native already has a home but I will have a few of these small originals,... as well as other mini artworks, available for purchase in my studio sale at the end of the month. If anyone would like to be on my mailing list for this sale please drop me a line at artist@vanessafoley.co.uk and I will add you to the gang! 😘

Just a little reminder that these three little Texans will be attending the Mondo House Party tonight! (My birds have a far better social life than I do 😔) The ...incredible group show opens at 7pm at @mondotees in Austin, TX. Absolutely stellar line up of artists and all original work priced very reasonably! Hope any who can make it have a wonderful night 🍻😘

I've just heard that all the original pieces and the Kingfisher print sets have completely sold out at THE VACVVM! There are still a few of The Occultation prin...ts left available as well as some patches and prints I designed for the collection, I have the link below if anyone would like further details. Thank you all so much for your overwhelming enthusiasm for this project, it's been a dream come true from start to finish and your support means the world ❤️

So excited to read this brilliant preview of the BRINK show in Hi-Fructose Magazine! This show is at Antler gallery, Portland, opens tonight (thursday 14th) at 6pm and all are very welcome

This annual show has an extra special place in my heart, most importantly because a percentage of the proceeds go directly to the Audubon Society of Portland, but also because BRINK was the first exhibition I had ever participated in with Antler and am honoured to now be in my third year of working with this wonderful gallery!

Really loving painting these beautiful Northern Flickers (spots to follow!) 😊 In other news my preliminary sketches have sunk to dazzling new lows 😂
