ARTIST Patrick Cannon used his childhood in Milton, near Didcot, as a source of inspiration for his paintings.
This oil painting, A Forest Opening, portrays Milton Manor’s woods and was on show at Oxford Art Fair at The Fishes pub, North Hinksey, at the weekend.
Mr Cannon, 40, who sold three paintings for £220, £300 and £450, said: “We used to visit what I used to call the secret forest in Milton, which actually was just a thin strip of woods on the boundary of Milton Manor.
“It seemed a lot larger when I was little, and it used to seem so much bigger. This is a child’s perspective.”
He said: “The Oxfordshire countryside is beautiful and I want to bring out the vibrancy of it in my work.”
