My poppy painting in a magazine!

I have just been alerted by my son, to the fact that my painting is in the Goring Gap magazine behind Sarah, the gallery owner! It is  a shame the article is about the closing of the gallery, but my poppy painting is in full view.
This is part of a series of paintings I did of flowers. As women in the past were not allowed to paint anything but flowers, due to our delicate sensibilities, and it would teach us about nature, I thought it interesting to blow them up, so making the delicate flowers powerful.
I have also created a series of giglee prints of these, which are a little smaller than the 1.20m or 1m lengths of the originals!... so able to even fit on a cottage wall.(these are for sale through my etsy site).
have a great never know when fame may strike!

Surprise visitor.

Yesterday when I went to the studio I found this little fellow in front of the door.
I carefully put him on a plastic tray without touching him and put him high up in a bush.
I am glad to see there are bats around but sad to see this one clearly not in top condition. He did bare his cute little teeth at me so there was some spark left in him. However he had a hole in his wing.
Alas today he was found dead on the lawn.

Beautiful dandelion weed inspiration

Although many hours in our garden have been spent getting rid of dandelions, I haveto admit that I do find them rather beautiful, especially when they are about to selfseed.
What an amazing way to populate the world. Nature is so amazing.
