The unusual, two-part structure of this painting, Pond at Shipton (Diptych), derives from European altarpieces from the Mediaeval era, whereby two similarly sized, hinged panels could be closed at relevant ecclesiastical times. Penelope has adopted this idea here to great effect, the symmetrical panels (fixed) showing a divided panoramic view of a Cotswold beauty spot. Both panels depict different parts of the view but conjoined visually there is a sense of semi-mirrored completion. The end result describes a shaded, sun dappled view of trees and water with a  paint surface that almost scintillates.

Born in 1942 in Buckinghamshire, Penelope studied Fine Art at Portsmouth College of Art where she specialised in drawing and sculpture, continuing her art studies in Rome and Florence. She has spent most of her life living abroad, particularly around the Mediterranean. Internationally collected for her miniature, surreal and wildlife paintings, she is currently working on larger and much freer oil paintings and pastels, concentrating on places that particularly catch her imagination. A particular facet of her work is a sense of mysticism she adds to the physical scenes before her.
