Autumn in Wiltshire

Went to see a friend yesterday in Chippenham, it struck me how late autumn is this year. As we were driving into Chippenham town, the trees were just starting to change colours.

On the return journey along the M4 motorway ths sun was good to see.

So --- No stitching today......... but the evening sky was a pleasant surprise. Photo was taken at the bottom of the garden.

Its been a long time..........

Hope I am now back to blogging on a more regular basis. Its been a tough month, I have been working at my own work, but not blogging. Unfortunately was not enough time in a day to do both and work full time too.

My work recently has consisted of getting stuff ready for some exhibitions later this year and the start of next. This has involved framing and finishing. Takes such a long time to do. It is quite satisfying to see it all finished and ready to go.

Then followed a week of total lack of creativity......I was I did some charcoal sketches ( on A1 paper), I like to work to music and just let go...... here is one of the results.

Once I have done these sort of exercises - I can usually start playing in my sketchbbok. Still all very abstract. Tried to photograph my sketchbook tonight to show you and as you can see had lots of help!!

Hope you can see some of the sketches, despite the helper.

Not quite sure what is going on with this next page, have been doodling. We'll see how it evolves.

A quick refreshment break for some - that's my painting water, just as well I had just put some clean water into the jar. Will have to go and fill it up again to carry on painting.

A few more pages, am on a roll - so I think I will just colour pages and start drawing onto the pages afterwards.

Its good to be back.
