A Conundrum

Could the person that produced this:

be the same person that produced this?

The bottom picture is a print signed by Mark Spain and entitled After Harvest 15/75. It cost me £4.99. It is a beautiful rural scene (not unlike the one from my own back garden) and could be anywhere in England after the harvest has been taken in and the evening shadows are lengthening. The colours are just right for the scene and on close inspection someone of considerable artistic skill has produced it.

How many Mark Spains can there be? According to www.mark-spain.info/ a Mark Spain trained in graphics before setting up his own printmaking studio in Kent. From that clue, I do believe it could be one and the same and I think he has quite a following with his current work.

So, an early Mark Spain or just a Mark Spain? That is the conundrum.
