Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Another painting in 'The Ghosts Of The Animals' series, and a second painting using the ancient stone 'cross' known as 'Fat Betty', set on the North York Moors in North Yorkshire.
Although today the North Yorks Moors appear as an almost barren wilderness, the landscape is in fact almost 'alive' with signs of earlier times and forgotten industry. And amongst those signs, numerous stone crosses and other way-marks abound.
The White Cross is one such well known marker stone, though I've chosen to use it's more colloquial name of 'Fat Betty', for the title of the painting.

Materials used:

Acrylic, ink, graphite, and pastel.
