This is a new painting, finished just today. Rivington Pike is a local walk favourite up on Winter Hill near Bolton where I live. There are all sorts of birds around so I chose kestrels as the subject.
Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.
