Spandrel paintings in Lincolnshire
Lincolnshire is not known for its medieval panel paintings, but recently I came across these two naive censing angels at Friskney in the Lincolnshire marsh. They are painted on the eastern spandrels of the fifteenth century nave roof and my guess is that they acted as part of the rood composition above the chancel screen. They are virtually invisible from the ground, but with a six second exposure I got this result. In the bay to the west of this are the remains of an Annunciation, but it has fared rather badly in comparison.
