How Peter began painting rural scenes is simple, even if it sounds daft.
By : Deborah Susan Jones : Editor

When Peter made the decision to become "self-published" in 1999 it did not, and has not, seen the end of dragon paintings . . . . . . .
He included dragons in his book "Paintings of Ludlow" which, though about a rural town in the County of Shropshire in rural England, is steeped in the Arthurian legend and the very roots of that legend are in the prophesy concerning "the Red Dragon of Wales and the White Dragon of England" and that too has lead to some newer works being created in the studio right now.
To our great satisfaction these dragon art pictures remain as popular as ever.
