Having fun!

The Robin with topiary
6 x 7 Oil/Panel

Since I am surrounded by landscape designers, gardeners and gardening magazines up here in Scotland, topiary has crept into my paintings! When visiting my Dad a couple of weeks ago I drove over to Clipsham Topiary Avenue and took some photos to help with my paintings.


My improvised studio!

This is where I am working right now! I ordered a daylight light which arrived yesterday and will make working here a lot easier. To be honest I don’t have a lot of time, but I am managing to get some painting done in between hospital visits. It is keeping me sane, that’s for sure!

I put out lots of bird seed and am so enjoying having my own resident robin and a couple of little wrens. There are also some lovely blue tit’s in the garden, which will be the subject of my next painting.
