With the Grand National last Saturday, the racing season is well and truly upon us, so this horse-racing painting has been chosen as Picture of the Week.

Polkadot Pictures & Framing highlighted the colours in the painting with an inner mount of grey combined with a white outer mount. A simple woodgrain frame in dark grey completes the tranquil effect.

BIRD-WATCHERS! Explore the location of this picture with the RSPB
Visitors to Polkadot's gallery at Decoporium, Thorp Arch Retail Park, may have seen this peaceful rural scene and wondered where it was. In fact it's a thriving nature reserve in Cambridgeshire, teeming with wildlife and famous for its nightingales and cormorants, as well as migrant warblers, hobbies and even an osprey.
The Leeds branch of the RSPB has organised a coach trip to the nature reserve on 29th April, and non-members of the RSPB are welcome to join the event. For details, see the RSPB web site - booking is essential and places are limited so contact them now to book your place!
