Second commission of ‘St Peters Church’ Maer

Commissioned painting of Maer Church in Staffordshire
‘St Peter’s Church’ (2) Maer Newcastle Staffordshire

Oil on linen canvas panel 10 x 14 ins


After starting the first painting of St Peters church,  I was commissioned to do this second picture. By coincidence the client came into the gallery shortly after I started the first painting. He too got married at the church and was visiting his wife who is buried there. As explained in the first painting of St.Peters, Charles Darwin, the father of evolution married there, after marrying Joshia Wedgwood’s daughter, who used to live in Maer Hall which is opposite the church. Some years ago I was commissioned to paint Maer Hall by the present owner, since Darwin’s days, the Hall has been reduced considerably in size.
