Thanks to my friend Marion for her dramatic photograph of the sky above the Isle of Mull.
My painting looks better than here on the blog.  The picture was far too wet in the painting so I'll be doing it again. Watch this space!!

Autumn Leaves


 The spider's touch, how exquisitely fine!
Feels at each thread, and lives along the line!

Sunset 1

I have it in mind to do a series of sunsets in the near future. This is one painted following a recent project at my watercolour class.
A Winter Scene.

Remembrance Day

In Flanders fields the poppies grow
Between the crosses,row on row,
That mark our place.
It was a privilege to join so many people in Tesco's Rainham, observing the two minutes silence at 11.00 a.m. today.

Who countest the steps of the Sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime,
Where the traveller's journey is done.
William Blake.
