Painting

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the kind feedback for my painting over the past few months. For years (decades!) I always made a new years resolution to start painting but never stuck with it. But in 2017 I finally did (about bloody time!). And now I am kinda obsessed! I'm trying to paint most days and just want to get better and better. I still have soooo much to learn and it is very frustrating having so many ideas, so many things I want to paint, but I'm not yet good enough to paint them. But I'm learning with each new painting, through experimenting and lots of trial and error, and I'm very excited about what I'll manage to achiev

Bah - winter is looming - dark, cold and miserable. :( I would willingly skip Christmas if I could fast-forward straight to spring.

For those of you who enjoy my garden photos (and your comments are always appreciated) I have made an up to date video of my garden. It is filmed with my Nikon camera so isn't the best quality but it gives you an idea of the layout.  It was completely lawn five ish years ago and has evolved over those years. I made no plans and had no gardening experience when I started. I kinda made it up as I went along! Anyhoo...I hope you enjoy! Loki the cat turns up a couple of times!

Remembering your kindness in making a favorite of my attempt to make a computer generated maze, I thought you may be interested in an article about mazes in this week's New Yorker magazine. It's titled "The Garden of Forking Paths", and it is written by Nicola Twilley. The subtitle is "How the world's foremost maze-maker leads people astray".

Thanks again.

Your eye for the fanciful is lovely!
