Happy Mix it Monthly..


two of my sons were off on Friday so we went to Loggerheads in North Wales to celebrate my birthday..such a beautiful peaceful place. I think we will go again next week with the rest of the family as we loved its half term too

Driving back from North Wales we always see Helsby Hill so today we decided to explore it..such a lovely place but very windy up there..we had a lovely picnic too after exploring the quarry

so having a rest now with a cup of is going to be perfect..and it sure was..
Happy Tea Tuesday




Of serenity and understanding…

I wanted to paint all about the beauty of autumn and nature this week.  I noticed on Piaroms mix it monthly challenge that it was star signs..well its my birthday week and so have included the libran scales.  I have been treating myself to lunches this week at my favourite cafes after bike rides through the beautiful  woods and today I watched 5 buzzards overhead circling with their distinctive cry..something you wouldnt notice if in a car.  To see the larger “.. ready to embrace” painting and read some meditative poems click here and to see the larger” ..of serenity and understanding”  painting click here.

This weeks simple watercolour is called I see a larger view and read the accompanying poem click here

Autumn approaching

This week I finished the tunic I was working on and used some amy butler fabric for the hem and pocket..quite like it.  I have given up scrolling facebook which I was finding to be too negative so have found I have had a lot more time to do stuff such as starting a little rug hook bird piece.  The painting is all about who is left or read the full poem and see the larger painting click here
