Bluebell Wood and new paintings.

The beautiful days of mid Spring warms my body and soul for the blissful Summer ahead and as the days become longer we can spend much more time enjoying walks through the woods and along the edges of meadows.  Bluebells fill the woodland floor creating a carpet of blues and new leaves of ferns uncurling. The jewel like greens and creamy pink blossoms are gifts from the trees for the birds that are singing their celebration of Spring time once again.




Natural archways and tiny bridges over streams take me deeper into an emerald and sapphire dream.








 Images and sights of this magical world start to manifest inspirations for new paintings.

A gift of an early Spring after the storms of England.

The February storms have passed and these first few days of March have been amazing for the early buds and blossoms of the hedgerow and woods.  While walking the tiny country lanes I find that everywhere has  come alive with the first flowers of Spring. Snowdrops are fading now to create the space for daffodils and celandines and the first of the cherry blossom are in company of singing birds calling their mate home for the evening.
The soft Spring light after the rains has inspired new paintings of nature as it returns to new life.




The fresh greens and softness of creamy pinks against the dark branches of trees.



Beautiful calm, sunny days with whispers of mist over the water.

New 'Heart' art prints ready for Valentine's

During the last week or so, while the rain and wind storms were raging outside my window, I decided to paint a few new originals for art prints to sell in my etsy shop.  Staying cosy and warm, I dreamed of Spring and the sunnier days to come but it is soon Valentine's Day and thought these prints would be perfect to do for this time of year.

'Friendship'.

'Dreaming'



'Rising Moon'



'The Moon and the Stars'



'The Gift'


All of these art prints have touches of gold leaf in the details, which I feel, make the colours sing and adds to the beauty of the prints.
More small originals coming soon.
