A Celebration of Summer




Summer blue skies,
Swallows sweeping high and low,
Velvet nights,
simmering heat and crickets singing.

Sounds of water,
freedom,
time that lingers softly,
floating,
dreaming,
walking bare foot,
the list goes on....
such a generous season
hot, sultry Summer!


Tomorrow it's back to school for the kids, Summer holidays come to an end and the first leaves fall from the trees. It is still hot in the South of France but there is a distinct end of Summer feel at this time of year, so we savour each day and the gifts it brings!

In this piece, I celebrate Summer's beauty, its juicy fruity colours, its brightness, nature's grand beauty as it shows off all its bright Summer colours, from the vivid bright greens that keep us cool to the blinding yellow sun, the cool colours of water to the juicy fruit selections, what a blast, cheers to Summer!

Your art looks so warm and summer-like with these amazing colours - the idea of a summer with you, if not the summer here! I just love your distinctive way of making a collage, matched by your poetic words.
