    I enjoyed planning & painting this Noah's Ark design as I have not painted any kids designs for a while. I tried my best to get as many different birds & animals in as possible but every time I asked my husband what he thought all he could say was "The animals went in two by two!"  I might be a workaholic who loves a challenge but no way could I face having to paint two of everything I did manage it with the Dolphins but that will have to do.

    I like this painting because it shows the beauty of nature even with all the electricity pylons & wind turbines. Bindweed is hated by many but it is the perfect plant to cover the ugliness of man made objects & reclaim them for mother nature even if it is just for a few summer months.

  3. Bluewood

    A Bluebell Wood in May is one of the most beautiful places on earth.

    This wood is one of my mams favorite places where she played as a child. It is near the tiny village of  Binchester in County Durham. My dog Poppy is waiting to lead you into the wood.
