As I have been doing a little painting lately, I’ve decided to post my efforts here as I finish them. The most recent will be at the top. Hopefully they will improve as I go along. Click on the picture and you should be able to see the actual size unless stated otherwise. The name and date is below the painting.

These are beautiful! You’re reviving my interest in painting
We are very pleased that you have taken up the painting again, not only for the teaching of your students, but for your own pleasure.
The decision to put up each of your works as you finish them is a brave one, but a good one. It will provide an easy opportunity for both you and your viewers to see how you are progressing and particularly to note what are the continuity threads in style and subject. For example, I see the darkening colours of autumn in your first painting has now moved to the depth of the snow drifts in the recent one. I also note that not having touched the brushes and paint for some time, you are quickly becoming familiar with it again.
Keep it going!! It’s good!

Your paintings are fabulous! I love the reeds in the water and your daisies too – beautiful! I also love the the Silver Birch – perfect colours! I made some cards using silver birch stamps recently, and I think they might be my favourite trees
