Warmth and Shine

It's that time of year when a bit of colour and warmth feels needed and so I hope this bright piece warms you all up!
I've been busy making marmalade and mango chutney this week, so lots of bright orange colour in the pot too!

Abstract Winter Morning

This has a bit of Winter peeping through, it makes me think of gazing out on a Winter's day at the soft Winter light and the frosty patches over in the forest.

Frosty Day

Somewhere in the frosty grasses the little ones came out to play on a cold Winter's icy day!

Merry Christmas

The Holidays are coming soon now, the kids need a well deserved break!
Time to dream, play and just be! 
It may be a busy time, but how good it really is when you stop to savour a simple moment of peace and gaze at the twinkling lights, taking time to listen to music or sounds of nature and peace.

Since I may not be back here until after Christmas I send you all my seasons greetings for a happy and peaceful Christmas! Enjoy all the little things of this season that make it special to you!

Much love and cheer

Christmas and Advent

Hello, it's a busy time of year but also a time when we need to slow down to really enjoy so I hope you put the brakes on and just enjoy a moment of simple pleasure when needed!

Above is a a quick collage I did for art journal journey using old xmas calendars and cards. 
Below is a beautiful sky I took one evening in November, I love these end of year skies the best!

For advent I painted and decorated this wooden house

and each day my kids receive a little box filled with treats. I had lots of fun making this and filling all the little boxes, Lulu especially adores this! 

Best wishes and love to all

Abstract Autumn

There comes a point when Autumn feels more like Winter, golden colours turn frosty. An icy edge in the air, so fresh and dry. The light changes too. I felt this change last week-end, when the first cold came upon us, the sky turning a bright shade of blue, with a different intensity and clarity.
Really beautiful.
These pieces are tributes to the golden Autumn days, the orange light and glow as the sun sinks lower in the sky each day.

Swirls, twirls, breezes rushing through or maybe just a quiet whisper or a gentle caress.

This abstract is loud and full of energy. Warm tones of reds and oranges, streaks and marks.
Sometimes you can catch the evening sky with some fire streaked through it, glowing so bright before the dark inky black night like a hot ember, it heats my heart and soul!

Warmth and peace to all!
